Uganda Wildlife Educated Center (UWEC) has partnered with a food processing company named Newman Foods aimed at promoting and conserving the biodiversity in the country targeting scholars in institutions."

The partnership will capacitate the efforts to render conservation programs in schools and communities as a way of promoting wildlife conservation

According to the Executive Director of UWEC, Dr.James Musinguzi, the partnership involved a donation of Shs48 million and materials worth Shs10million in a bid to roll out the program to schools across the country including Kyenjojo,Mbale, Mukono, Wakiso, and Kigezi among others.

"We are working with National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA), the National Curriculum Development Centre to embed wildlife conservation education within the school curriculum promote the message of Wildlife Conservation across the country” Musinguzi stated.

He also highlighted that the program will promote use of proper waste management systems across institutions to address the effects of climate change.

The Newman's Foods commercial manager, Rosette Najjemba Ssegujia said, "We also started giving dustbins to many of the schools in a bid to train students proper waste management, that when you finish to eat you don't litter waste but instead put it into the dustbin hence conserving the environment."

Najjemba added the support towards the zoo will move for the next two years as they continue to engage learners on wildlife conservation through the UWEC's outreach program across the country.

This outreach program was first rolled out by UWEC under their wildlife conservation workshop at St Mary's College Kisubi in Entebbe.
