By forming a legal committee to oversee the communities’ funds, our staff helps village’s create and build a savings account, prepare for emergencies, and support local businesses.

 
  Constitutions  – We help the village committees write and ratify legal constitutions to ensure that the village has a long-term, sustainable group who is committed to the community’s long-term economic flourishing. The process of writing a constitution and doing projects together builds trust and ownership within the committee and the village as a whole.

  Planting trees  – We educate communities about the dangers of deforestation and the need for reforestation to fight climate change. We help them plant mvule trees, which are the most important trees in Busoga culture and serve as a long-term investment for the future. We also help them plant a variety of other trees that will provide food, shade, beauty, and building materials in the short and long term. During these meetings, our Mvule staff also helps the community understand how to work with the government and benefit from government programs.

  Goat exchanges  – At the end of one year taking care of their trees, our Mvule staff gives the community members goats, which can be bred, sold, or used for milk and meat. Communities decide together what to do with the goats. This economic investment in the community encourages and prepares them for their own independent economic projects.

  Economic projects  – As a group, committees decide on the village’s future economic projects, such as planting crops, caring for livestock, or purchasing equipment for neighbors to rent. Our Mvule staff facilitates the first of these projects so that the community is prepared to autonomously handle future projects. This education also helps prepare the community to teach neighboring villages about savings and investments.
