The project is implemented as a cooperation between Seniors without Borders (SwB), Nordic Folkcentre for Renewable Energy and in Uganda Joint Environment and Energy Project (JEEP) and Safe Neighbourhood Foundation (SNF). SwB is project leader and responsible to CISU.

In 1999, JEEP signed a seven year contract with PLAN International to implement the Environmental Conservation Project (ECP) in the Luwero District (different parishes each year) of Central Uganda. JEEP has implemented a five step program:

  • Create awareness of environment and climate through seminars.
  • Host Training of Trainers (TOT) camps to teach stove construction, advanced agriculture, community extension, and other topics.

It is against this background that Joint Energy and Environment projects partnered with FAO Uganda (LOA 056/10) under a project titled Gender based violence prevention, social economic response and coordination in North Uganda (OSRO/UGA/004/UNJ)  to train participants in construction of energy saving stoves and tree planting in Usuk and Toroma sub counties of Katakwi District.
