Bwindi Community Program

March 15, 2021 4:55 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Jan and Jim Tanis, while traveling in Uganda in 2007, met a very charismatic young man.  He lived in a small village called Buhoma near the gate to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.  They developed a friendship with him over the internet (Yahoo reaches amazing places) and supported his education for a couple of years.

In January 2010, Bwindi Community Program was incorporated and it has become a 501 (c) (3) tax-deductible charity. The program has its first twenty children in primary school this year and hopes to increase that number.  Education is a major building block in stemming poverty and HIV/AIDS in Uganda .  

Please visit their website to see the children’s smiling faces and learn more about the program.
