Story

Suma is a community of about 6,000 people in one of the remotest parts of Uganda. Located in the far south west of the country it is an area of indescribable beauty, bordering the DR Congo, hemmed in by the Virunga Volcanos and the mighty Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the remaining habitat of the endangered Mountain Gorilla. There are no roads, there is no running water in homes, and no electricity available. They are as off-grid as you can get. There are no paid jobs and life is tough, people survive on subsistence farming and tending livestock. Cooking is done by burning wood, which is harvested from the forests.

In Suma, there is a primary school that is in desperate need of support. Singing Gorilla Projects are looking to fund a new classroom block, latrines and a kitchen.
