Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green team together with the National Environment Management Authority Management (NEMA) was in Moroto to celebrate this year’s World Environment Day. Which was hosted at Naitakwae Grounds in Moroto district, this year’s celebration ran under the theme “Fight Air Pollution to Protect Human Health and Environment”.


Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green whose major aim is to see that every child in Uganda plants and owns a fruit tree visited started their journey to make sure that we have a polluted free environment, in schools where a follow-up and planting of the trees was done.

The campaign started at Nkokonjeru Primary school in Mbale on their way to Moroto. The team inspected the fruit tree that they had previously planted; they also went on to visit other schools like St Martha, and Naitakwae primary school in Moroto where the team planted trees with the deputy French ambassador.

The world environment was celebrated at the Naitakwae Grounds in Moroto district starting with the walk that saw attendants walk through Moroto town.  With other activities like recording a documentary in line with this year’s theme, production of different IEC materials, and tree planting & restoration among others.
