Requested by

Mama Africa International Organisation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

This project is called Environmental Conservation for Better Livelihood Project and is concerned with building the capacity of young people using better environmental management practices for a sustainable social economic development. Continued environmental degradation in Uganda has remained a big threat to the people living here and causing severe problems for the local communities and the country.

What is your project and how will it help?

This project is designed for a period of 1 year focusing on the Wakiso district. The project entails promotion of environmental conservation and management practices through training the students and communities in environment protection activities such as tree planting, flood control mechanism, fruit growing and energy conservation technologies. These activities are to be implemented in selected schools. The project targets 1000 beneficiaries over a period of one year, 500 students at school level, 50 teachers, 290 community leaders and 160 school dropout as well as parents. It is anticipated that by the end of the project beneficiaries will have acquired knowledge and skills in environmental conservation and management.

Work plan for one year:

1: Consultative meetings with 60 community stakeholders.
2: Production of IEC materials
3: Sensitization workshop for 50 teachers on environmental conservation management practices
4: Sensitization workshop for 60 parents on environmental conservation management practices
5: Sensitization workshop for 500 students on environmental conservation management practices
6: Training workshops for 500 students on SRH/HIV/AIDS
7: Training on study and life skills
8: Tree planting & nursery bed establishment
9: Fruit orchards establishment
10: Training in energy stove making
11: Making energy stoves
12: Training in fuel briquette making
13: Monitoring
14: Project evaluation

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Partnership is at the heart of Mama Africa International Organization. The success of our projects depends on our partners in order to help the needy children, youth, women and the community.

We would love to partner with diverse non-governmental organizations, individuals, schools and hospitals.

We urgently need volunteers in different fields e.g. sponsor a child project,
and many other projects. We also train students at different schools, children at orphanages and women self help groups on how to make briquettes. Sponsors can hire us to offer a service to any shool, orphanage or self help group in Uganda, and the little fee you pay us will help us run the organization’s activities.

Please detail the resources that you need.

We kindly submit in our proposal with the amount of US $ 47,985, for the sustainability of the project, as well as:

(i) Trained local artisans for Lorena stove construction are to continue training people at community level and guide them during stove material preparation, construction and maintenance.

(ii) Established nursery beds will act as a source of seedlings and income.

(iii) Established environmental clubs are to continue with awareness and education on environmental conservation approaches.

    Uganda Green Charcoal
    (Unverified non-profit organisation)

    UGANDA GREEN CHARCOAL says: Uganda green charcoal is concerned with the global environment that has drawn attention on different platforms, highlighting the devastating effects as unfriendly actions continue to exert pressure on the green nature.

    In Uganda, only 10% of the populations have access to electricity while the rest use firewood for cooking and other power requiring activities (NEMA 2013). As a result, deforestation is occurring at an alarming rate of 1% approximately 90,000 acres of forest cover annually at the center of deforestation is the lucrative trade, commonly known as "black gold". This problem is compounded by the high population growth rate of more than seven live birth per adult female. As a result, the country has been plighted with deforestation at a magnitude beyond comprehension.

    To this, realizing the environmental challenges affecting our country, we the founder members resolve to form a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) known as UGANDA GREEN CHARCOAL
