What We Do?

We’re On A Mission To Solve
The Problems

Climate Change & Livelihood

A Just Transition affirms Uganda’s right to development and industrialization based on the Paris Agreement-negotiated language of equity and the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in the light of different national circumstances.

Natural Resources Governance

Threats to natural resources sector continue to exist affecting their productivity and sustainability. Many areas that have been gazetted as protected areas continue to be encroached for human activity, either due to poor enforcement of bye laws, or due to poor community attitude towards conservation. 

Illegal Wildlife Trade

Illegal hunting for bushmeat and poaching for ivory are huge problems in Uganda. Both Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks contain rich wildlife including elephant, lion, buffalo and crocodile.

Community Just Transition

Education is the backbone of a nation. But many children do not get a chance to go to school due to their poverty. So we are raising funds for a project called education for everyone and every child will go to school.
