The Bukonzo region lies along the Rwenzori Mountains in Western Uganda. The dancers perform traditional dances for their own celebrations and ceremonies, and also for visitors to the region. PODA volunteers have all experienced one of their performances, as have many of the visitors who stay at the lodges within Queen Elizabeth Park.
This group is affiliated with our partner organization Cobra Association for Life Improvement (COBRA). In the past PODA has supported the Bukonzo Dancers by providing them with funding for skirts, instruments and transportation costs. Currently they are operating independently and are self-sufficient.
