Assistance is given with the marketing of their locally produced crafts at the Ishasha Wilderness Camp, with basic training for healthy living in rural areas, with saving plans and the administration of small loans, as well as with providing guidance for larger funding that is available for such communities.


A local homestead tour, such as Agartha's Taste of Uganda Trip, which offers a wonderful opportunity for you to experience how rural Ugandans go about their everyday lives, is another locally guided tour that we offer for guests. They are also conveniently located off the Bwindi-Ishasha Road, making it simple to incorporate these tours into most itineraries.
