As part of KAFRED's Riverbank Conservation and Education Project, the District Environment Officer speaks to local farmers during a field exercise.
Our Mission Statement
The Rwenzori Development Foundation (RDF) aims to support and enable the development of self-reliant and sustainable rural communities in south-western Uganda through empowering education and conservation programmes.
RDF aims to provide UK volunteers with opportunities for personal growth, development and an awareness of developing world issues through their involvement in fundraising challenges.
We recently supported KAFRED’s Riverbank Conservation and Education Project. The overall goal of this project was to raise awareness and equip local people with knowledge and practical skills to restore degraded riverbank areas.
During the course of the project it became clear that demarcating the wetland was integral to conserving the wetlands. When the boundaries are marked, the wetland will not be disturbed and will therefore regenerate naturally. As a result, part of the grant was spent on boundary posts and trees to enhance the demarcation of the area.
