UWEC recognizes the support of Yokohama Greenery Foundation in Japan and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), who have donated a solar power system worth $ 8,040, to power the Ostrich incubator at UWEC. The incubator and hatchery was initially donated by Care for Karamoja in 2012, thanks to Sheri Horizny and Saint Barbra Zoo in California for this great and noble gesture.

We are already taking care of  40 eggs and successfully hatched local chicks over the last two weeks. The objective of this project is to hatch these birds and distribute them to local communities around protected areas in order to provide them with a source of protein with an aim of reducing pressure on wildlife through Bush meat and poaching.

The donated equipment will serve as a power back up to the diesel generator and Hydro electricity (UMEME). The solar system will help solve the power cuts problems which have crippled our incubation programs in the past.

UWEC and their friends would like to thank the Greenery Foundation, the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Uganda and Yokohama as well as Sheri Horizny and the Saint Barbra Zoo in California, USA for the continued support.
