This project targetes and benefites several areas and districts which include Kampala , Kasese, kalangala , Wakiso,Masulita ,Kiboga ,Mbarara, Yumbe , Isingiro, Butambala,Masaka , Jinja, urban refugees among Others

The project procures animals from basically low income and small farmers within localities so as to improve their incomes. Normally small farmers are targeted for obvious reasons. Recipients here are also availed with tree seedlings to plant at their homes as a way of protecting the environment.

Each year, over 900 cows/bulls were purchased and distributed to the poor and needy communities, refugees, orphans, widows, social centres, hospitals, prisons and other institutions to boost their diets.

Uganda had 4.93 million hectares of forest cover by the 1990’s (24.1%) but by 2005 this reduced to only 3.55 hectares (17.4 %). Uganda lost 28 % of its forest cover within just 15 years at a deforestation rate of 92.000 hectare per year.

Over 90% of the domestic energy needs in Uganda is by biomass with 96 % house hold cooking dependent on fuel wood (Enku) or charcoal (Amanda). Industries and brick burning activities also use a lot of wood. It is anticipated that by 2026, Uganda will need 1.7 million hectares of wood per year (NFA). Uganda loses about 6,000 hectares of forests every month.
