Bamboo Village Uganda was founded with the goal to fight both climate change and poverty. By planting and growing bamboo, the greenhouse gas CO2 is absorbed, decreasing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, which is causing global warming.
Our bamboo nursery is a direct source of the creation of long term jobs, such as nursery and field managers, bamboo specialists and drivers. In addition, once the bamboo is harvested, it creates additional job opportunities for those who turn the bamboo into products. The bamboo grown on our plantation is not only used to create products. We use the bamboo to build safe and sustainable homes.
