The Tree Nursery Located in Katakwi Town Council

In partnership with the National Forestry Authority of Uganda and Katakwi District Natural Resources and Environment Offices, Voice for Humanity Uganda has now established a tree nursery that will be producing tree seedlings for distribution to the community to promote Agro-forestry. We have launched with an initiatl nurseries to produce 50,000 Gravelia seedlings by Septemebr 2022. We are also already grafting Mangoes and Orange seedlings and we hope to have gatfted 20,000 Orange and Mongo seedlings by September 2022. 

Voice for Humanity Uganda plans to produce one million tree seedlings annually for dsitribution to the communites to promote climate change mitigation efforts. Katakwi District and Uganda in geenral are currently experiencing unprecendented negative effects of climate change characterised by prolonged drought and occassional floods that is affecting food production and consequently leading to endemic problem of hunger and malnutrition. These challenges are aggrevated by massive cutting down of tree for charcoal which has turned out to be the quickest source of income for the rural poor especially the youths. Unfrotuantely without any direct efforts to promote tree planting, the situation could get worse.
