TO DO Award 2017 KAFRED, Uganda
The non-governmental organization KAFRED was founded in 1992 and is owned by the local population. The aim was to preserve the Bigodi swamp area in the North of
Uganda. With the revenues from tourism the area was turned into a tourist attraction and infrastucture measures in Bigodi and the surrounding areas could be realized. Participation of the local people, education, nature and environmental protection are key elements of the project.
