Kisiizi continues to have an amazing impact all over the world.  A tourism student at the Pantheon Sorbonne of University of Paris chose Kisiizi Falls as a project due to its links with the United Nations World Tourism Organization ST-EP Project (sustainable tourism, eliminating poverty).

A huge thank you to all who give towards the work of Kisiizi Hospital in various ways (see Supporting Kisiizi tab on this website)

The impact of Brexit etc. had already impacted Kisiizi even before the pandemic caused a number of pressures.   So please pray with us and do all you can to help mobilise support.  In Kisiizi we have harvested trees, we generate hydro-electricity and we are running the tourism project all of which help generate some local income but the external support remains vital and we greatly appreciate all who contribute.
