Engagi Safari’s Community Projects


Engagi Safaris has started numerous community development initiatives to reach the rural, needier populations of Uganda. Ikumba Village is situated 20 km outside of Kabale town in Southwestern Uganda with a population of nearly 500 people. Currently on the ground, Engagi Safaris has started an Agro forestry Project and Chick Rearing Project to bring in alternative sources of food and nutrition.


The people of the area rely mainly on agriculture as their source of food and income. With the changing climate, production has changed noticeably in the area. The main diet for people in the area is called Posho, made from ground maize meal, and beans but not much variation for nutritional needs. Access to safe drinking water is another huge challenge in the area, with unsafe water causing many of the area’s health issues such as typhoid. HIV rates in the area also account for a number of the area’s orphans. For many families, paying school fees is out of the question and without education, the cycle of poverty continues.


Instead of getting overwhelmed with the depressing statistics, Engagi Safaris is looking for a positive way forward. By focusing efforts in one village, the community is already starting to see results. With time, Engagi Safaris hopes Ikumba Village’s projects to be a model for other villages to follow. The project is doing this through multiple initiatives including chick rearing and agro forestry.
This is a rural organization that is dealing with improving agricultural and the overall standard for people in the community. This is achieved by utilizing better methods of farming, rearing better breeds of domestic animals, planting fruit, making of crafts, educating orphans, and providing skills for the disabled.

Engagi Safaris , Kabale Backpackers & Engagi Craft Shop (at Kabale Backpackers) is dedicated to the support this project in many ways including selling the project’s crafts free of charge and helping to find markets for the project’s produce.
The project is currently rearing 200 chicks with a goal to rear over 500 chicks in the future. Eggs are an affordable, easy protein source for Orphans/Vulnerable children where meat can be scarce and expensive in areas lacking electricity. A flock of chicks can help families add nourishing, life-sustaining eggs to their inadequate diets. The protein in just one egg is a nutritious gift for a hungry child. Protein-packed eggs from even a single chicken can make a life-saving difference.
Engagi Safaris helps many hungry families with a starter flock of 10 to 50 chicks. The hybrid chicks donated from Engagi Safaris, if fed well, can lay one egg a day. Because chickens require little space and can thrive on readily available food scraps, families can make money from the birds without spending much. And chickens help control insects and fertilize gardens.
