Running Out Trees Campaign

We continue to support initiatives aimed at Environmental sustainability, given that according to NFA 2018, Uganda faced loss of its forest estate from 24% of the total land area in 1990 to 12.4% in 2015 translating into a loss of 2.4 million hectares in a span of 25 years.

Vision group partnered therefore partnered with UBL on campaign dubbed “Running Out Of Trees (R.O.O.TS)” an initiative aimed at addressing the concern of deforestation in the country while encouraging the public to plant trees to foster sustainable development and save the environment thus reversing the effects of deforestation. The campaign included a 330 km awareness RUN to Northern Uganda while planting trees along the road by representatives of different corporate entities.
