  • Description

    Description

    My name is Ronald , 40 a Ugandan National. An Environmentalist by profession, a farmer , Football Coach and Climate Change Activitst. I have 3 children, Timothy, Melissa and Vanessa.

    I am the Director and Founder of this foundation but we have other Staff members as well. Since our inception in 2007, we have been conducting a number of Projects including, Music and Dance, Relief Aid to children, the Football Academy Program and now our tree Project.
    Our Organisation's mission is to empower children into becoming stewards of the environment and more importantly guide them to become major stakeholders in the fight against Climate Change in Uganda so that they become the change they want to see in the World.

    In 2016, we came up with the project after the realisation that Climate Change was becoming a serious threat to the well being and future of children in Uganda. We also realized that despite of the threat, no concrete measures had been taken by Government to address the issue and yet Schools were preoccupied by the efforts to have as many children pass in first grade without necessarily teaching children about Climate Change. We realized too that trees were being cut down at unprecedented rates and thus carbon levels were increasing in the atmosphere partly contributing to change in Climatic Conditions.

    We therefore came up with our Project with the aim of not only re- greening the depleted environment but also empowering children to become environmental stewards in their own communities by teaching them about the importance of tree planting in tackling Climate Change but also planting trees with them practically.
    The project works in Jinja, Iganga , Buikwe and Mukono Districts It works in Primary, Secondary and Tertially Institutions. We have so far planted in 48 schools within Jinja District and we intend to scale- up the Program to other Schools in the different parts of Uganda and later cover the entire East African region.
    Our Goal is to ensure that every school in Uganda becomes a major stakeholder in the fight against Climate Change. We have the passion and determination to achieve this; and we hope that joining us will inspire us achieve this goal.
    We also have The Renewable Energy Program which is part of our Project Strategy that equips Schools and Communities with skills in making low- cost renewable energy aimed at reducing on deforestation and overall dependence on wood fuel which exacerbates Climate Change. By joining us you will be able to make an impact on the lives of children and rural women where we work., because developing countries always suffer most from the devastating effects of Climate Change. At the end of your volunteering session, we shall offer you a Certificate of Merit which will help build your career as an upcoming Environmentalist.
