This is our flagship program to respond to the SDG #12 Responsible Consumption and Production, #13 Climate Action and #15 Life On Land. This project focuses on two environmental challenges facing northern Uganda; waste management and deforestation. We support local communities by increasing awareness on these two issues while leveraging local solutions and sustainable alternatives.
Our waste management approach comprises of sorting and managing waste and building affordable composting systems in local schools. 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.
- To create awareness & sensitize the public on negative impacts of environmental degradation
- To train young people on composting as a waste management practice
- To document and share best practices on environmental sustainability
