Environmental Education Project (ECO-PESA)

Summary Environmental issues and controlling, mitigating them is becoming evermore important in the Zombo region in Uganda (more specifically the sub-counties Paidha and Atyak). Extensive, destructive usage of the soil and other natural resources, together with, among others, poor waste management cause more severe droughts, combined with the increase of spreading pests and diseases. To raise awareness and reduce these negative impacts, the project “Eco Pesa” (Swahili for “Eco Money”) focusses therefore on environmental education and income generation through practical environmental conservation.

JEEP Green Ambassadors Club

The JEEP Green Ambassadors Club is an initiative to encourage and motivate mostly young people to realise a more ecological future. We do this by appealing to peoples different drives and present, in accordance to the sustainable development goals, environmentally friendly and practical ways to achieve their goals. We, for example, reach out to less fortunate people to share new ways of sustainably generating income. An example of this would be the multitude of ways in which tree leaves can be used, instead of cutting down trees to sell firewood.
