Our Approach


MCDO applies an integrated approach to community development by advancing environmental conservation, education, ecotourism development, rural livelihoods, and sustainable agricultural initiatives for the communities living close to Mgahinga and Bwindi Gorilla National Parks in Kisoro district, southwestern Uganda.


The history and background of Mgahinga Community Development Organization.​


The initiative to create MCDO came in 2003 from a few dedicated members of an existing community-based organization, Amajambere Iwacu Community Camp. At the time there were several community initiatives focused on specific development issues working completely independently of each other within Gisozi parish. MCDO was created to bring these initiatives together and to help educate, facilitate and coordinate these member projects so that we can all achieve more together. 



To promote environmental conservation and improve livelihoods in the Bwindi-Mgahinga conservation area in Uganda.
