Plant a tree, Save a Life
Mankind still lives because nature exits. However this coexistence is being tempered with by man’s selfish activities that include charcoal burning, uncontrolled agricultural practices in Kasese District in particular which have caused unnecessary massive cutting down of trees. This has resulted into prolonged droughts resulting into hunger, land conflict, climate change and the subsequent disappearance of glaciers on mount Rwenzori which is the major tourist attraction and hence the earning of foreign exchange to the country.
This too has reduced the daily income of individuals who survive on the tourists like the drivers, tourism companies and tourists’ guards and the general community that fully depend on agriculture. This is a serious community problem that requires immediate attention and action. Thus, justifying our commitment to plant trees on every bare hill and other redundant lands in the cited areas in Kasese district accompanied by sensitizing the communities on the best practices of keeping the environment friendly.
Restoring the eco-system on the slopes of Rwenzori.
Planting 60000 trees by the end of 2021. The activity will target majorly women and young people.
- To green the Rwenzoris to restore a friendly environment for glaciers on the mountain
- To train women and young people on the best practices of environmental conservation
- To engage the community as the beneficiaries of good and well protected environment.
We look forward to have partners in the different support aspects in the campaign. This may be financial, material, labor, expertise and consultancy.
