DROHA Uganda Combats Climate Change Through Tree Planting in Schools

Transforming Lives

In a strategic move to address the pressing issue of climate change, DROHA Uganda has embarked on an impactful tree planting initiative in four schools across Kamuli and Jinja Districts. This initiative forms part of a broader program that includes Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) and Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) education. The schools involved—Buwagi Growers Primary School, Kyabirwa Primary School, Bupadhengo SSS, and St Mary’s Nawanyago Primary School—collectively host 3,813 students and 85 teachers.

One of the core objectives of this initiative is to reduce the effects of climate change by enhancing the school environment through tree planting. During the recent activities, 38 trees were planted across these schools, transforming the campuses into greener, healthier spaces. The involvement of students in these activities has been crucial, as it fosters a sense of environmental stewardship and responsibility among the young generation.

The educational aspect of the tree planting sessions focused on imparting knowledge about the environmental benefits of trees. Students learned how trees play a vital role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen, and providing shade and habitats for various species. This hands-on experience not only enhanced their understanding but also motivated them to take active roles in caring for the newly planted trees.

DROHA Uganda’s collaboration with the Schools Tree Project has been pivotal in these efforts. By providing the necessary resources and expertise, this partnership has ensured that the tree planting activities are not only successful but sustainable in the long term. Despite challenges such as limited land for planting in some schools, the initiative has made significant strides.

This initiative is a testament to DROHA Uganda’s commitment to creating a sustainable future. Through these tree planting activities, they are not only combating climate change but also instilling important environmental values in the next generation. The positive feedback and active participation from students underscore the success and importance of these efforts. Continued support and follow-up visits will be essential to nurture these young trees and ensure the longevity of this green initiative.
