The focus of this project is on two environmental challenges facing northern Uganda; i.e. waste management and deforestation. We support local communities by creating more awareness on these two issues while tapping into local alternatives and solutions.
Our waste management approach comprises sorting and management of wastes, building locally affordable composting systems. We also organize the annual “Gulu Go Green Marathon” to respond to the indiscriminate cutting of trees and to raise tree seedlings to be planted by young people in their schools and other parts of the community.
This is our flagship programs to respond to the SDG#13 on taking urgent climate action and its associate effects.
