This project will plant more seed beds to increase the planting of more trees in Uganda and create school environmental clubs to ensure students plant trees every Monday in a one-student one-tree campaign. Over 10,000 trees will be planted in the seed beds in 10 Schools and 6 villages. The 10 clubs established in schools and MULIA youth-led club will manage and distribute the trees to communities where they come from and give assembly lectures on the importance of planting more trees.
Climate change is the greatest threat facing the world's children and young people. It is a youth issue because in Uganda the youth population accounts for a sizeable share of the total population and also depends heavily on agriculture - a sector that is highly exposed to climate change. Young people are not the only victims of climate change. They are also valuable contributors to climate action. They are agents of change and can scale up their efforts and use their skills.
In addition to combatting climate change and environmental protection, this project will raise educational institutions' awareness about deforestation and the importance of afforestation. Students will gain skills in seedbed development and tree species. They can then become leaders and ambassadors in sharing the knowledge with their families and communities. The schools' seed beds will provide a continual source of trees for communities and other schools in other regions.
The trees will combat climate change. Clubs in schools and communities will be agents of change for the environment and climate, making it more sustainable for the future. We will restore wildlife habitats for animals that live in trees. We will increase Schools' awareness of the impact of deforestation on the environment and increase knowledge of tree multiplication. Increase afforestation knowledge among the young generation. Students will be aware of challenges as a result of deforestation.
