Our vision 2022-2024


Our focus clearly is on conservation of biodiversity, through collaborating with communities adjacent to the protected areas. We aim at doing so through eco-tourism, value addition and market linkages for sustainable forest-based services.

Conservation Zones

The lands of indigenous marginalised communities in Uganda’s Karamoja sub-region are hosting important watershed areas which are important for the community at large. But due to socio-economical factors, the people and their lands are under increasing pressure with disastrous results.



Kara-Tunga is developing Eco-Camps adjacent to protected areas in Karamoja which act as incubator for conservation in the respected areas. The eco camps offer direct and indirect job opportunities and act as point of reference for the community as well as partners.


Community-Based Tourism

Improve the livelihoods of the community through successful community-based tourism activities. KTF and its stakeholders will jointly invest in relevant skilling opportunities for the community, and provide youth with the required training for a career in sustainable tourism & hospitality.

Marketing linkage

KTF pro-actively supports partner communities with developing sustainable enterprises through capacity building, market linkages and branding.
