The Conservation and Environmental Project has been initiated under our integrated poverty alleviation and conservation program.
This program educates, offsets carbon emissions and transforms communities into healthier more sustainable environments. Many people especially in the rural area in Uganda live on severely degraded land. These land conditions directly affect their living standards. It is very difficult to grow food, collect firewood, or make a living off the land. Degraded land also contributes to global warming — when trees are gone, they can no longer remove the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
HIV and AIDS: More than just a health crisis…
HIV and AIDS affect every dimension of social and economic life, robbing children of parents, contributing to maternal and child mortality, devastating work forces and undermining economies. Our work focuses on the children left most vulnerable by the pandemic and on preventing transmission from mothers to babies.
Infectious disease: Pneumonia and diarrhea are the two biggest killers of children under 5, while malaria remains a major killer in sub-Saharan Africa. Preventing and swiftly treating these diseases is the best way to eradicate them— and we work to help achieve this.
