Environmental Education Hub

Update posted by Stella AKITENG On Apr 16, 2019

We were able to get started with the building of the Environmental Education hub (#Updates https://www.facebook.com/CommunitiesInActionShareYourConcern). This earlier dug underground water well on the project secured land got to be protected by laying bricks as pictured in the gallwry-all made possible by your support https://gogetfunding.com/ee-hub/ THANKS AGAIN! - Next stage is the construction of a slab to seal off the top. This is to prevent soils etc from falling into the water/well lest it gets blocked, non-functional and abandoned. The underground water well https://sciencing.com/underground-water-6548733.ht... shall facilitate the irrigation process, among other Community Programme Activities especially during water stress conditions.

After assembling this home made potable biogas facility #Updates https://www.facebook.com/CommunitiesInActionShareYourConcern, today we did take measurements of the cow dung mixture which is now settled in this container. After 15 days, we expect the gas to have formed; which gas can use for cooking and lighting.

After five days from the time of putting up the nursery bed #Updates https://www.facebook.com/CommunitiesInActionShareYourConcern, the seeds are germinating so a shelter has been put over the seedlings. After a total of about three weeks from the time of putting up the nursery bed, the seedlings should be grown ready for transplant to the prepared gardens. We got to water the nursery bed twice a day (morning and evening). We have also put thorns and a net at the sides to prevent intrusion by chicken and other animals among others

The other good news is that mangoes trees are fruiting in and there is room for improvement when it comes to food storage including preserving mangoes so that they don't rot and/or are not wasted.

This is what Kapir geographical location (project target site) currently looks like

What has so far been done?

  • Though an on-going process, we have done some community consultations in the cattle corridor district of Ngora and the oil region of northern Uganda among other extractives-driven development contexts. These have greatly informed the programming process. The consultations so far done have been made possible through taking advantage of already organized networking opportunities carried out by other development players.
  • Built relevant networks and synergies to compliment efforts towards bridging institutional capacity gaps on Policy Analysis and Research; Water Sanitation and Hygiene; Renewable/Clean Energy; Green Architecture and Agro-ecology/farming.
  • Dug an underground water well and secured access to land along a lake for easy access to water supply for both agro-ecology (irrigation) and animals. There is also a borehole constructed near the project site https://idauganda.com/2017/01/09/rural-communities-for-water-justice-exiting-the-era-of-conflict-handouts-dependence/.
  • Started the on-going process of social marketing the humanitarian tourism project to enable volunteer recruitment towards smooth and successful implementation and sustainability of the programme. Marketing channels so far used include social media, emails and word of mouth.
  • We have secured at least 20 cattle; 10 goats and 10 chicken (Kindly refer to the campaign pictorial for sample of local breeds reared. The waste of these animals are needed as feeds for the biogas for cooking including fertilizing the soils and boosting the irrigation process during water stress conditions.
  • Social media platforms for programme
