Everyone can and it’s possible.
In solving a crisis like climate change, environmental degradation, which are real, I am unapologetic.
Strong passion to end this calls and I believe in achieving positive results when I reach out to local communities on ground, young generation, youths and practically engaging them in practices that will help to save our planet. Over the years, I have grown to love to care for mother earth. It’s an urge to mitigate the effects of climate change with our actions.
Our environment has been left helpless. Communities are no longer aware of what to do to protect the natural resources. There is massive cutting down of trees without replacement, we have lost most of the native tree species and biodiversity. Climate crisis is alarming. We are now experiencing prolonged dry spells, increase in temperature, heavy floods, landslides, soil erosion, low crop production and many are not caring about this. Such never used to be in years before and where we are heading for the worst conditions if we don’t act now.
As the organizer “Plant a Tree Plant Hope Campaign” I am planting 10 million indigenous and fruit trees in Uganda.
I am committed to fighting ecological crisis, restoratoration of Uganda’s ecosystem through tree planting & spreading awareness through local community interaction revealing to them reality of climate change effects, training them on different ways of mitigation and adaption.
I have also trained young generation on simplest ways of upcycling plastics to make wall decoration materials, key holders, curtain wall and swigging ropes. This has helped to reduce plastic pollution in my community with it negative effects on climate.
