Ruboni Community Camp is proud to be causing the most needed changes in the local villages around Rwenzori Mountains National park. Since the camp is fully owned and run by the local community, all the profits generated go back into the support of the community conservation and development initiatives.
This income goes back to the community in a number of ways;
1- Salaries and wages to the workers. 100% of the workers are from the local community.
2- Purchase/ market for the local produce and services required by the camp during all operations. These include foods, crafts, demonstrations and other part time services.
3- Supporting community development and conservation projects initiated by the community and within the community according to their own identified and felt needs. These include, skills training needs, household economic empowerment projects, awareness raising.
