Challenge

In rural Uganda, most families are unable to purchase enough safe food, water, shelter or healthcare. As a result, many sell their fruit trees to international companies for lumber. This makes it even more difficult for families to get enough food, and contributes to environmental degradation. Reduced plant cover already contributes to dramatic climate changes in Uganda which in turn negatively impacts crop productivity

Solution

100 households will each receive 5 fruit trees so that they can sell the produce and increase plant cover in Uganda. They will also receive training on how to care for the trees, how to sell the fruit, and the importance of protecting the environment.

Long-Term Impact

The organization will work with the local government environmental officer to train households on management of fruit trees and with the district production officer to help households with value addition. That way we can inform the community on how to protect and preserve the environment while also earning an income for their families.
