Island of Hope Uganda is a youth-led and youth-focused environmental non-profit organization dedicated to Climate Action and advocacy for good environmental governance. The organization was incorporated in 2019 in Uganda as a company Limited by Guarantee.
The organization believes that young people (18-35 years) are key accelerators of solutions to prevailing and future environmental challenges. These young people not only have the knowledge development potential but the potential to create mass awareness, run community organizations and businesses that promote environmental sustainability.
Our programs create spaces for young people to interact with and engage relevant stakeholders in the Implementation of the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
Green Leaders Project aims to bring awareness of the Climate Change phenomenon, its impacts, and how we can foster Adaptation and Mitigation actions.
Jonan took his time to explain the purpose of the project his goal and expectations but also to know your expectations.I got a chance to make a safari, to try the local food and visit the village. What I can say is « merci Islande and Hope de m’avoir fait passer une expérience mémorable. J’ai appris, j’ai partagé et j’en garde que des souvenirs merveilleux
I was amazed by how beautiful the local nature is and surprised by how life can be so closely connected to nature. It really lets you appreciate our earth. Besides nature, engaging with the local people in the villages was exciting and enriching every day anew. Jonan and his family are great hosts and give you the chance to experience the rural African life in a secure and caring community.
