In 2016, IHA reinitiated a tree program by facilitating the planting of approximately 200 trees at three primary schools in the West Nile region.  Many of the trees planted in 2015 were killed by a drought.  Various types of trees were chosen, including banana varieties (matooke, sweet), other fruits (mangoes, jack fruit, avocado), and hard wood varieties (grivaria, teak, and ficus).

During the spring 2013 humanitarian trip,  IHA volunteers met with 15 members of the Buyaga community and discussed a project in which families would plant five trees periodically, when they collect firewood.  Two weeks later, some 60 community members met with a Uganda forest ranger to discuss the project.  A Forest Keepers Association is now formalized.

COMMUNITY RECEIVING STOVES

In the spring of 2012, IHA received a small grant from Seaworld Busch Gardens.  With funds from the grant, IHA purchased fuel efficient stoves for Kyosimba Village community members living adjacent to and collecting firewood from the Mujuzi Central Forest Reserve.  Solar cookers were locally constructed and a stove constructed for the primary school.
