Earth Volunteers, an organization dedicated to environmental protection and empowering young minds to participate actively in climate action through volunteerism, has achieved significant milestones with its Climate School initiative.

Established in 2020 to rally individuals passionate about addressing climate change through voluntary action, Earth Volunteers considers this initiative a key strategy for educating and equipping the next generation with essential knowledge about the planet's delicate balance and the consequences of inaction on climate change.

Climate School 2030 showcases Earth Volunteers' innovative approach to the urgent need for comprehensive environmental education. Aiming to reach 1.5 million young individuals across Uganda by 2030, the program seeks to develop environmentally-conscious leaders endowed with critical thinking skills and an in-depth understanding of climate change challenges.

Nyombi Morris, the founder of Earth Volunteers, stressed the initiative's critical role, stating, "Our vision is to protect, restore, enhance environmental sustainability and raise a generation that can take individual actions voluntarily. I lost my home at the age of 10. Up to date, the suffering and the grief have never left. Still, pushing for serious actions like Climate education will mark a significant step towards preparing a generation to combat climate change through informed solutions and the state climate change has to their future, every young person will join the fight."

Since its establishment, Earth Volunteers has led impactful environmental projects, including ecosystem restoration and extensive tree-planting efforts, resulting in over 50380 saplings planted across 23 Ugandan forest reserves. This commitment earned the organization the title of "Environmentalists of Tomorrow" by CNN International in 2021.

A pivotal achievement of the initiative has been its partnership with UNICEF Zimbabwe, which supplied the "Our Changing Climate" book that was first published in 2008 but never used. This collaboration has empowered Earth Volunteers to impact over 13550 students across 25 schools nationwide, disseminating vital climate change information and motivating students to become proactive change agents through tree planting and teaching them how to conduct nonviolent demonstrations.

Tenywa Samuel, the organization’s financial director, elaborated: "These partnerships are crucial for spreading vital information about climate change and motivating students to become proactive change agents."

Aligning with Earth Volunteers' broader vision and mission, the Climate Justice School initiative aims to protect, restore, and enhance environmental sustainability while energizing a generation to tackle climate change through volunteerism.

The organization's objectives include educating communities about climate change, empowering individuals to act, and mobilizing support for sustainable solutions. Goals encompass increasing public climate change awareness, fostering critical thinking, advocating for renewable energy, promoting sustainable consumption, and aiding communities in adapting to climate impacts.

Solomon Anomet Ojokit, procurement lead, emphasized the initiative's importance: "The Climate School initiative is central to our commitment to a sustainable future, empowering the youth to lead environmental conservation efforts and champion climate action."

In addition to engaging over 26,000 students and planting more than 50380 trees across 18 forest reserves by the end of 2022, Earth Volunteers is boldly developing the largest eco-village spanning 8 acres of land in Uganda. The site will be managed by strong and resilient women who are refugees of climate crises. The primary focus of this project is agroecology, with a special emphasis on soil restoration techniques and practices. The ultimate goal is to instill hope in climate refugees, and we will achieve this by distributing the produce grown on this site to refugee camps annually through our enthusiastic youth volunteers.

Earth Volunteers invites planetary volunteers worldwide to partner with them and donate to expand their impact. They require funding to bring their dream project for climate refugee women also known as (If We Knew - Project) to life. This involves purchasing a larger abandoned dry land and transforming it to alleviate hunger with refugee women's support and feeding climate refugees in camps countrywide in Uganda using organic fertilizers and homemade pesticides. 

“Although their primary focus is on Uganda, these two initiatives aim to engage a global audience by 2030,” Zulaika Namwanje, Earth Volunteer's global coordinator, stated.
