Supporting Schools to Connect with Wildlife
Twinning UK and Uganda Schools
Reusable Sanitary Towles
The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project works with school in the UK and Uganda.
We assist in twinning schools, run a Cluster Group to support teachers, encourage school cultural exchange through blogging, support environmental education activities, we run the annual Conservation Cup competition in Uganda and support improvements at Uganda School.
We also keen to promote connections between schools and their local Ranger Team and have an ambition to get all our Twinned Schools to visit their Queen Elizabeth Park.
It is estimated that 30% of Uganda girls from poor families miss school because of the lack of sanitary towels.
This has a big impact on their education, on their ability to escape poverty and therefore
Conservation and environmental resources are also affected.
Our Project provides reusable sanitary towels to girls at our Twinned Schools as part of our efforts to support communities living at the edge of the Queen Elizabeth National Park
You can help keep girls in education by donating £3 per month
provide enough towels for 24 girls

The Conservation Cup
The Project has worked with some of it's Twinned Schools to organise Teacher Exchange Visits.
Thanks to some funding from the British Council, Hambledon Primary School and Liss Junior School from the UK are taking part in an exchange with Rihamu Primary School and Kafuru School from Uganda.
All four schools are regular bloggings on Primary Blogger, so you can keep up with the latest details of the exchange by clicking here
