Welcome to SCOPE Uganda
Schools & Colleges Permaculture Program
SCOPE Uganda is a network organization that is working tirelessly to root Permaculture in Schools and communities where there is an urgency for young people to learn nature friendly farming skills to enhance environmental care and attain a better livelihood.
SCOPE is a member of Regional Schools and colleges Permaculture program (ReSCOPE) which comprises of country Chapters in Kenya, Zimbabwe ,Zambia ,Malawi, Uganda. We create a platform for advocacy and networking in order to raise a common voice.
We helped more than 17 million children and their families last year.
Why food forests?
Turning a desert land into a food forest takes a lot of commitment and resources especially in terms of practical trainings, but it has a lot of impact to all school stake holders and the community as a whole when they see a desert gradually changing into a food forest.
We incorporate ethics of Permaculture as well as integrated land Use designs to create sustainable gardens.
During these trainings, we engage all community stakeholders including students, teachers, school administration, parents, PTAs, local leaders.
