Impact Report

To find out how our Teaching Program influences the understanding and behavior of our students and their relatives and local communities, we started our own research and are currently evaluating the results.

As previous research shows, the influence of environmental education on children turns out to be much higher than on adults. Our results suggest that it is fundamental to educate the youngest generations in order to change the societies behavior. Children are the key to our future!

As our results show so far, the education program did not only increase the environmental awareness and hence the concern of the children, but it also made them realize that their individual behavior influences the environment. Whereas prior to the education program most children thought the government was most responsible for environmental preservation, after going through our program they majority perceives that every individual is responsible to mitigate the effects of climate change and marine litter.

Climate Letters

Climate change is becoming an undeniable threat to global society. This makes it all the more important to make younger generations aware of this issue - after all, their future is at stake. With Climate Letters we have the aim to connect teenagers between the global South and North and enable young people on both sides to gain an insight into the lives, culture and challenges of their peers on the other side of the world. We want to build international friendships that broaden the participants' horizons in the long term. The project is aimed at young people from the sixth to the twelfth grade. The prerequisite for participation is to be able to read and write English - this also offers a perfect opportunity to deepen existing language knowledge.

Environmental Protection

Plastic Recycling & Upcycling

Polyethylene is the most popular plastic in the world. It is used for packaging, grocery bags, plastic bottles and more. It can be fully recycled and reformed into new products. Unfortunately, due to a lack of waste separation, it ends up on garbage dumps, in our nature and the seas where it needs centuries to decompose. This is a threat to the environment, as natural habitats are more and more contaminated and destroyed. With our project we up-cycle single use shopping bags into reusable and durable bags and back packs which not only contribute to a clean environment by reusing single use bags, but also provide comfort and style to our clients.

Distribution of Trash Bins

One of the most urgent issues concerning environmental protection in Jinja is the lack of waste disposal facilities. The state does not provide opportunities to properly dispose and separate garbage. We donate trash bins to schools so that students learn how to separate waste and make the first step towards a cleaner environment. This way students have started to separate plastics from residual waste and provide an opportunity to recycle those materials.


Uganda is one of the most threatened countries by climate change without being one of the main causes. Still the country suffers from severe climate consequences due to deforestation. Population growth and migration have increased demand for agricultural land and fuelwood energy.

Rural poverty limits the ability to invest in sustainable land use practices. In line with this trend, Uganda might loose all of its forests in only a few decades. Together with students we plant domestic trees in order to set a countertrend, make children aware of the importance of a healthy environment and contribute to a reduced CO2 balance.
