Green Schools Project Activities

Hima Cement Ltd. launched the green schools project activities in Uganda in June 2008. This project was aimed at inculcating a culture of environmental care among school children by involving them in tree planting and nurturing activities. By providing a long term renewable source of income for schools, trees would be harvested after 5-8 years for sell as timber or used as domestic fuel wood for cooking. The learning environment in schools would also improve causing a retention rate in these schools.


The project has assisted around 30 schools and over 160,000 trees have been planted. Other benefits from this project have included providing water tanks of over 10,000 litres, construction of classroom blocks and VIP latrines and the donation of sitter desks to the participating schools.
