This project will promote the planting of half a million trees,promote the use of fuel efficient stoves and interlocking bricks which will help conserve the environment and reduce poverty .
Tororo is currently experiencing environmental degradation as a result of massive cutting down of trees for domestic and economic use without massive replacement. Right now getting fuel wood is a problem and very costly. No one is allowed to collect fuel wood in some ones land. Women are just looking for tree stumps to dig up the roots to get fire wood. The soils have become infertile resulting in poor crop yields. This project will affect more than 500 people and 20 institutions.
We provide tree seedlings of woodlot, agro forestry and fruit species to people to plant. This will help provide fuel wood, improve soil fertility and generate income. We do promote the use of fuel efficient stoves and interlocking bricks.
The project will restore and conserve the deteriorated environment making it to be conducive for humanity to live in and also improving the economic status of the people. It will help improve on soil fertility and increase crop yields
As a resident of Tororo for 65 years, we used to have a lot of tree cover in the 60’s, now many trees have disappeared resulting into many problems. This project is timely and urgently needed. - Odoi Akisaferi, 65- year old project beneficiary.
