ECOLOGICAL CHRISTIAN ORGANISATION
Ecological Christian Organisation (ECO) is an indigenous, Non Governmental Organisation registered in Uganda as S.5914/5509 and working towards realization of sustained livelihoods for marginalized, under-served and vulnerable groups in Uganda. Since its inception in 2005, ECO has implemented a varied portfolio of projects in the greater Karamoja region, the Abertine rift and the L. Victoria basin. The current initiatives are focusing on natural resource governance, climate change and livelihoods, and ecosystem management and restoration.
ECO’s mandate spans the entire country which, despite its abundant and quality natural resources, has a high proportion of food-insecure people living below the poverty line and contributing significantly to environmental degradation. There are, however, considerable opportunities and possibilities for economic growth and attainment of national development goals and global sustainable development goals, particularly those relating to poverty, hunger and environmental sustainability.

HoPE has taught us to make energy saving jikos [stoves], with no smoke. Since I started using the energy saving jiko, my husband can stay longer in the house, because there is no smoke that will drive him away. He can even stay with me longer in the kitchen as he waits for food and keeps me company. Energy saving jikos has increased love in our families.”
Since I was a child, I have gone fishing, but the population increased,fishing practices worsened, and fish reduced. However, HoPE trained fishermen to practice good fishing methods, they got rid of under-sized fishing nets and also trained BMUs to supervise the fishing activities, and now there are fish. HoPE caged a breeding area for fish. With the help of the bylaw that governs the breeding area, fish have increased in number. This is visible because fish are even seen playing and jumping around the lakeshores…”
