Hands of Action Uganda is awarded One Million Trees grant

Trees were planted at Bukari Primary School in 2011. More fruit trees will be planted at four primary schools, helping to feed children.

Trees were planted at Bukari Primary School in 2011. With the grant, more fruit trees will be planted at
four primary schools, helping to feed local children.

 
Hands of Action Uganda is pleased to announce that The Pollination Project has awarded us a grant to plant fruit trees in our community!

“The first phase of the Fruit Tree Project will take place in four local primary schools, and will offer selected students indigenous environmental knowledge and practice, while supplying food and wood for the school. The Fruit Tree Project aims to address both the food and fuel shortages in the area by providing affordable nutritional fruits for children and woodlots for every family with a child in primary school.”

The project will support planting and monitoring of 1500 trees. The plantings will help to feed children, but also will be part of the school curriculum, teaching children about sustainable agriculture, environmental protection, and how to solve local social and economic challenges. Eventually, the project will be extended to five additional schools.

Hands of Action Uganda sincerely thanks The Pollination Project for their support!
