Summary

YOFICC has been engaged in a project to create a sustainable briquettes energy market in Uganda for women and the youth. The project encourages rural women and youth to actively participate in this value chain as a means to generate much-needed income. The proposed model allows women and youth to train in briquette making, get financial literacy and environmental awareness as one of the forms of fighting climate change and poverty at the same time through sustainable agroforestry practices.

Challenge

The impact of deforestation in Uganda has caused diverse climate challenges which have led to the loss of income and thus poverty among the communities. It's against this background that this project is initiated to address those challenges. YOFICC has been engaged in a project to create a sustainable briquettes energy market in Uganda for women and the youth. The project encourages rural women and youth to actively participate in this value chain as a means to generate much-needed income.

Solution

Such can be made possible through the establishment of briquette makers' associations. The project will be implemented in 3 districts in North-East of Uganda in the regions of Amuria, Soroti,and Katawi with an objective to reach out to 5000 women and youth. One of the outcomes of this project is to market sustainably produced briquettes for the sale and replacement of conventional charcoal in Uganda. The production process of this conventional charcoal is at a highly inefficient rate, resulting

Long-Term Impact

Carbonized briquettes can act as a replacement for charcoal for domestic and institutional cooking and heating, where they are favored for their near-smokeless use. In comparison to charcoal, they generally burn for longer and have a more consistent heat output, which is preferred by certain market segments such as restaurants, hospitals, schools, and poultry farmers.YOFICC plans to train 1,000 people Amuria, Soroti, and Katawi.
