Through this program, we are working with children and students in Schools by engaging them in outdoor learning and conservation activities. Learners engage in co-curricular activities through forums like debates, the Pupil’s parliament among others where they gain practical life skills in the process.
The project is currently benefiting 5 schools in Lwengo and Masaka districts but we hope to expand and reach out to 15 schools by 2024.
Impact of Eco-Schools.
Biodiversity restoration. Young people are bringing back life to our swamps, land, forests, by creating livable environments for birds, earthworms, mushrooms and others thereby contributing to SDG 15-Life on land
Stewardship and Learning. The project is empowering children and students to become responsible citizens that take action to preserve the environment through proven practices that enhance their learning and preserve natural resources and the environment.
Livelihood improvement. The impact of interventions practiced by children and students in Eco-schools spills to communities where they come from and to address livelihood problems. The Eco-schools approach addresses food security and nutrition, access to safe water, and related socio-economic benefits.
