This project focuses on two environmental challenges facing northern Uganda; waste management and deforestation. We support local communities by increasing awareness of these two issues while leveraging local solutions and sustainable alternatives.
Our waste management approach is twofold. First, we sort and manage waste and build affordable composting systems in local schools. Secondly, we organize the annual “Gulu Go Green Marathon” to respond to the indiscriminate cutting of trees and to raise tree seedlings to be planted by young people in their schools and other parts of the community.
