Agro-forestry in Uganda

Agro-forestry in Uganda

Save a Seed for the Future (SAFE) is an integrated non-governmental organization operating in the Teso sub-region of Northeastern Uganda with a main office in Soroti town. We were founded in 2010 and have been registered with the Ugandan National NGO Board since December 2012.

Working with both students and teachers, the Amuria Schools Tree Planting Project (ASTREPP) aims to raise awareness about environmental degradation and give students practical skills in tree planting. The project began in May 2017, and through collaboration with 10 local schools and with support from the International Tree Foundation, Save a Seed for the Future is educating local communities, delivering trainings, and planting 25,000 trees. Teachers will also incorporate training materials on how to raise seedlings into their daily classes and in the management of school nurseries. Mature seedlings are distributed to local communities to help improve livelihoods.
