Would you recommend Engineers Without Borders San Francisco Professionals Chapter?
I send you warm hearted greetings from Hope Revival Agency for Rural Development (HORARD) in particular and Uganda in general.HORARD is a local NGO registered in Uganda to handle capacity building,environmental issues and good governence among others.
I read with lots of pleasure what Engineers Without Boarders are doing to help revamp the worsening climate change through active participation in MDGs.
HORARD works with the fishing communities in Uganda whose practice causes the following:
Fishers of Uganda are scartered in the 168 islands of Lake Victoria and these islands do not have pit latrines and the lake is where they deposit their feaces. There is also poor waste management system in the islands and the fish landing sites and around the lake are also flower farms that spill alot of chemicals in the lake causing polution.
2. TREE CUTTING
Most fishers process their fish using trees for smoking and trees are being cut down faster posing athreat in the environment.
