Sustainable Natural Resource Management Projects.

Although VFA works mainly in the volunteer programmes, the SNRM Programme, which is supported by the Volunteer Programme provides a backbone of many community programmes under which VFA receives volunteers. The Programme, under the leadership of Kunga Ngece has grown drastically, and has attracted funding for some of the volunteer oriented projects.

The Lembus ecotourism Project is funded by the Netherlands Committee for IUCN, and seeks to enhance capacity for local women and youth to benefit from forest resources through sustainable ecotourism. The project seeks to promote voluntarism among the community, and enhance cultural exchange with development tourists visiting Lembus Forest.

The Eburru Integrated Project encompasses development, cultural tourism and health. Hanna has been supporting work at Eburru, a community that is suffering due to lack of water due to deforestation. The only source o water at Eburru is from underground steam jets, most of which is contaminated with minerals. Water pans have been excavated, and tree nurseries established to ensure the rivers that dried come back to live.

In Mpigi, Uganda, thanks to Mukasa, for the Friends of Mpigi Forests CBOs Community Bee keeping, environmental education and craft programme have effectively served the women around Mpanga, Lufuka and Kyansozi forest reserves. Degradation of these forests is a thing of the past, thanks to efforts of FOMAF, VFAs strategic partner, with the forestry Department and other donors as the Whitley Laing Foundation, Global Fund for Women and ECHO.

On his part Kunga has developed the Programme from scratch. Kunga is a Gender, NRM and Information specialist and has worked around Africa with major organizations, known widely for their role in natural resource conservation.
