SOFT POWER EDUCATION PRESENTING ‘MURCHISONS’ TREASURES’
The Jinja based Soft Power Education, instrumental in the rehabilitation, expansion and upgrading of local schools through tourist visitors’ contributions and volunteer work, will this Friday evening make a presentation at the Uganda Museum, unveiling ‘historical treasures’ about Murchisons Falls National Park. Starting at 18.00 hrs the opening function is expected to last until about 21.00 hrs and Soft Power Education’s founder and main lady Hannah Small and Ms. Kara Blackmore (Murchisons Project Museum Curator) will be making remarks and giving explanations about the material they unearthed, shedding light on the lengthy history of this national park where the only major waterfalls of the Victoria Nile can be found.
In regard to Murchison, SPE has this to say on their website:
In partnership with the Ugandan Wildlife Authority (UWA), SPE is now bringing conservation to the classroom in geographical areas of specific environmental threat, in particular the region in and around Murchison Falls National Park (MFNP) We are refurbishing schools in these areas, establishing conservation education centres and providing local children with their own opportunity to enjoy the uniqueness of the area on overnight safaris. As an organization, which has evolved rapidly, we continue to constantly look for new ways for working in partnership with communities to establish sustainable opportunities through education.

It is also appropriate here to congratulate Hannah Small for being awarded an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen recently, for her committed work done over past decades and her passion to bring development to those most in need in Uganda.
