ERA Supports Environmental Protection

On Tuesday, 15th August 20017, ERA attended the launch of the “Rotary Mission Green Project”.  The Project was launched at Luzira Correction Center, organized by Rotary in Uganda and Tanzania (District 9211).

The “Rotary Mission Green Project”, is an initiative aimed at restoring the environment by reversing the effects of deforestation and enabling the enhancement of the forest and tree resources to support socio-economic development.

The launch was officiated by the RT. HON. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga; the Speaker of Parliament of Uganda.

While addressing Rotarians and other officials who attended the launch, HON. Kadaga highlighted that Government of Uganda is dedicated and committed to restoring the forest cover to 18% of surface area, through National Programs that support tree planting.

She mentioned the “Tree Fund Program” that supports communities to sustainably harness reforestation and the Government’s support and recognition of the “National Tree Planting Day”.

Hon. Kadaga also urged the general public; especially the Public and Private organizations to embrace and support the “Rotary Mission Green Project”, in the struggle to save and preserve the environment for generations to come.
