Uganda based on the causes below.

Tree Planting & Seeds Search

Our new Growing Together Strategy is first and foremost a reflection of growing community led action to protect, restore and care for the environment and sustain livelihoods in response to deforestation, land degradation and climate shocks.

We need our remaining forests more than ever and to restore much of what has already been lost. Trees are a vital part of our planet’s ecosystem. We all rely on trees and their products: oxygen, fruits, wood, water, medicines and soil nutrients to name a few. They not only give life, but they also improve livelihoods. We often take trees for granted but can you imagine what the world would look like without them? Here are some of the reasons why ELV works to plant, protect and promote understanding of the vital role of trees for all life on Earth.

Permaculture & Environmental Education

Permaculture is a design system for the creation of ecologically sustainable human settlements, and plays an important role in the conceptualization of a sustainable future. Permaculture is located in the New Environmental Paradigm (NEP) that understanding systems ecologically. Permaculture is learned mainly through participation in permaculture design certificate (PDC) courses. The impetus for the thesis is anecdotal reports from participants in PDC courses that they experienced a sense of personal empowerment through learning about permaculture. The purpose of this research is to examine this claim by being a participant-observer with a group of participants in two PDC courses, and by following the engagement with permaculture of six PDC course participants over a period of two and a half years.

Teach English In Rural Schools

In Uganda, access to a proper English education is sadly lacking for those from poor economic backgrounds. While children from wealthy families can get an excellent English education in a private school, these disadvantaged kids cannot afford this privilege and as such lag behind when it comes to career opportunities later in life.

With the growth of the tourism industry, the demand for English skills has grown exponentially, and when you join this project you will teach English in local schools to ensure everyone has a chance at these opportunities.

Health Outreach, Communities & Schools.

Chronic underdevelopment in Uganda is a problem not easily solved. Remote rural living, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, a subsistence economy, loss of hope, and lack of services helps to keep many families dependent upon hand-outs, malnourished, and uneducated. Currently, there are few real ways to generate funds at the village level to support anything other than subsistence living. Therefore, The Real Uganda has developed relationships with local communities to help provide start-up funds, knowledge, and motivation all necessary to solve their respective problems in a sustainable way.
