A group of 21 teachers and students from Riverside Secondary School in Seychelles arrived in Uganda 17th August, for an exchange visit with Mutolere Secondary school, Kisoro Region in the east of the country.

They shared ideas, on environmental issues and how they use PACE in the Seychelles and in Uganda.

Guided by experienced and knowledgable local rangers they  visited Mgahinga National Park, home to Mountain Gorillas and other wildlife.

They looked at caves, climbed mountains, explored local farms and met the Wildlife Clubs in different schools in the area.


This visit and the initial school twinning were a result of connections made when a PACE team, including Wildlife Clubs of Uganda, attended and made presentations at the 2016 EEASA conference in Johannesburg. It’s so good to see fruitful partnerships and the tangible outcomes of events like these.
