We lose trees at a rate of about 40 acres per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems. Most of these degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa where millions of smallholder farming families use destructive and shortsighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead.
We introduced beekeeping project to raise awareness about environmental protection in the rural areas of Uganda especially where smallholder farmers use shortsighted agricultural practices that negatively impact their communities. Our main focus here is to support and train the children and youth in schools, communities especially smallholder farmers the importance of forest conservation especially those neighboring the wildlife protected areas + introduce beekeeping if they want to get out of poverty, plant more bee friendly trees especially coffee and foliage. We train farmers over a period of time to sustainably revitalize their land. We provide all of the training, seeds, tools, and materials. The farmers come prepared with their own land and ready to change their lives and their families. Through our Forest Garden Approach, farmers plant thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. This helps farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables which increases income and food security. Engaging the churches and schools especially the youth and children who are the future custodians of this planet.
