About JEEP

We are a non-governmental organization working for a green Uganda with an environmentally safe and clean habitat for the present and future generations. Located in the Pearl of Africa, where biomass accounts for 93% of the entire energy used, our mission is to combat environmental destruction and conserve natural resources.

JEEP was founded in 1983 after deforestation and soil erosion were identified as major threats to the health and welfare of Ugandans. These issues had recently been denoted as the prime contributors to the human disaster in the Horn of Africa.

JEEP GuesthouseToday, JEEP carries out training and awareness seminars, focusing on environmental conservation and energy-saving technologies. JEEP uses a grassroots, practical approach and reaches out primarily to rural farmers. JEEP also builds energy saving stoves for institutions and installs solar energy.

Our offices are located in the JEEP Folkecenter in the in the northern part of Kampala.
