The project is providing an opportunity for community members in Masindi and Bushenyi districts through teachers and pupils to learn more about the forest environment, its importance and what people can do to help protect it.

Specific Goals of the Project.
• To equip at least 30 teachers from 30 schools in two districts with the knowledge and skills for mainstreaming Environmental Education (EE) into the school curriculum.
• To engage at least 1000 school children from 30 schools in two districts in practical conservation activities such as establishment of woodlots in schools and communities, and construction of energy saving stoves.
• To improve human-wildlife coexistence through environmental awareness campaigns in 30 schools and 300 households around two targeted forest reserves.

Through;
• Environmental Education (EE) Teacher training.
• Tree Nursery work and construction of energy saving stoves.
• Roots and Shoots Mobile Education in schools and communities to raise awareness.

School children aged between 8 and 14 years are actively engaged in practical environmental conservation activities such as; set up of tree nursery beds, tree planting, construction of energy saving stoves and hand washing tipe-taps.
Children are also involved in forest walks as well as outreach activities at the already established Forest Education Centre at Kalinzu Central Forest Reserve.
