Raised Remaining


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 .

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

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.

How will this project solve this problem?

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.

Potential Long Term Impact

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
