Description

The project purpose is to strengthen the capacities of two primary schools along the lake to overcome environmental threats with negative impacts to Lake Victoria through addressing effects of deforestation and use of industrial agro-chemicals. The project will operate in two schools of Mwajombo and Buganda in Misungwi district. The project will enhance environmental education and community health education to the two schools, support schools to establish tree woodlots at their respective compounds to minimize soil erosion and act as wind breakers during wind period and will promote organic farming activities in schools to minimize the non point source pollution entering the lake from the excessive use of industrial agro-chemicals. The above schools and the neighbouring villages are threatened by non point sources pollution resulting from the agricultural activities done by both the schools and the community members along the lake; there is excessive trees cutting in search of fuel and extra income from sale of charcoal or firewood, this has affected even school woodlots and school reserved areas.
