This Month at JEEP – 02.2022

In this newsletter we briefly mention what we have been up to in the last month, hoping the curious reader enjoys following up. Projects With a “bit” of delay, the rather large solar installation at Imvepi Refugee Center is finally finished. Delays had multiple causes: car troubles, delayed delivery of solar panels, long production time of metal constructions,… Nevertheless, the whole system is now up and running. It powers several lights for the big market place in the center and stores/provides electricity for other equipment.

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.
