Uganda has lost nearly a third of its forest in the last two decades and could lose most of its tree cover in about 40 years unless measures are quickly taken to reverse the situation, environmentalists have said. Beacon of Hope Uganda believes that it is time to stop talking and start planting trees if Ugandans are to guarantee a greener, healthier nation for the next generation.

Beacon of Hope Uganda wants to teach kids and youth about sustainability, alternative energy, and respect for the earth because if it can engage them in active participation today, these people will be better prepared for the choices they will make in the future.
