Environmental and Conservation volunteer projects are a really powerful way to use the land and environment in Uganda to its highest capacity. Volunteers are involved in activities like reforestation, agroforestry, organic and sustainable organic farming and nursery projects.
This is perfect for people who love working outdoors and in nature, the ecosystems in Uganda are really varied, with dry forests, cloud forests, rainforests and mangrove forests throughout the country.
There is also important work being done to train farmers in sustainable agriculture, like irrigation, soil regeneration, tree planting, and fisheries management.
Sustainable agriculture in Uganda is an area that really needs support and a place where volunteers are making a big difference.
There is a huge need to create sustainable farms. Thanks to the work of African Volunteer Vacations we already have one farm up and running so far, but we need to do more. The crops produce maize, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms which farmers can sell to bring vital funding to their region.
