The project is located in Kabarole district which was part of the Toro Kingdom; it became a district in 1980. The district is bordered by Bundibugyo in the west and north, Kasese in the south, Kamwenge and Kyenjojo in the east. The project was started by community women who formed an association to generate income within their homesteads, taking advantage of the developing tourism industry in the region. Mt Ruwenzori is seen within the vicinity, as well as other natural sites like Queen Elizabeth national park.
The volunteers will get involved in HIV/AIDS awareness and Family Life Education work. They will also support the income generation activities of the women. The aim of the project is to help Butebe families improve their standard of living by selling crafts and processing locally available fruits. This would help young women live their life to full potential.
