Additional Info about Us
Mgahinga Community Development Organization (MCDO) works as an umbrella for different projects that operate in the community adjacent to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park (MGNP) in Kisoro district, southwestern Uganda. MCDO is the leading community non-governmental organization that is simultaneously promoting community development and gorilla conservations in the Bwindi-Mgahinga conservation area. The goal of MCDO is to use tourism as a tool to spur sustainable development through poverty reduction, preservation of the beautiful environment, education, good health, ecotourism, income generation, and sustainable agriculture.
The construction of an eco-community centre at Lake Mutanda, initiatives in sustainable agriculture, sponsorship of the needy children, provision of accommodation facilities, and animal welfare are just a few of the few projects in progress.
