Our mission is to support the chimpanzees at Ngamba Island Sanctuary in Uganda and to help protect chimpanzees worldwide. For short, we go by the name 'friends of chimps,' which is perfect because we care so much about all the chimps out there and the work done to keep them safe and sound.
A little about who we are: Ngamba Island & Friends
The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is managed by Chimpanzee Trust, a grassroots organization in Uganda that is dedicated to the lifetime care of the chimpanzees at the Sanctuary. In addition to caring for the chimpanzees, The Trust implements conservation and development programs aimed at finding long-term, sustainable solutions that empower local communities and protect chimps.
Friends of CSWCT is the U.S. nonprofit partner of Chimpanzee Trust. For short, we go by the name 'friends of chimps,' which is perfect because we care so much about the chimps and everything the Trust is doing for them. Friends works to raise money and awareness for the chimpanzees at Ngamba Island Sanctuary and the Trust's other important work. Find us on the web at friendsofchimps.org.
