Our story

Enjojo Foundation is a non-governmental conservation organization (not-for-profit NGO) that operates in South Sudan and in Uganda. The organization was established in 2019 in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda in response to the enormous pressure on Uganda’s wildlife and wildlife habitats due to the increase in human population on the one hand & ongoing poaching practices on the other.  Enjojo means elephant in the local Rukiga language. In Uganda we work under a Memorandum of Understanding with Uganda Wildlife Authority.  In South-Sudan, Enjojo Foundation signed a co-management agreement with the Ministry of Wildlife Conservation and Tourism for the conservation, rehabilitation and management of Kidepo Game Reserve and Lantoto National Park. Enjojo Foundation has also been registered as a Belgian NGO to oversee the work in Uganda and South Sudan, to build relationships with donors in Europe and the US, and to raise awareness about our work. 

With thanks from the Dietrich Foundation, we have started the building of a health clinic in Kameme village for communities bordering Ishasha Sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Enjojo Foundation is excited for the work in progress as we give back to our community.
