KASIISI PROJECT INC
The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Coming from a research science and education background I work to promote conservation through well-run, properly monitored, self sustaining educational projects that benefit communities living around protected areas in Africa, specifically through the support of primary school education in western Uganda.
I founded the Kasiisi Project in 1997 and now direct a project working in 16 rural Ugandan schools serving 8,000 children and their communities. We fund conservation and health education, school infrastructure, teacher training, secondary and college scholarships to 158 students, boarding facilities, sanitation and clean water, special needs of girls, clean cooking stoves, pre-schools and research programs.

Equity strategiesLast updated: 02/20/2022
- We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
- We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
- We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
- We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
- We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
- We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
- We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
- We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
- We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
- We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
- We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
