Our environment education package is tailored for the different schools level, primary and secondary. We work with a network of 20 primary schools and seven secondary schools around Mabira forest. The program combines the community conservation education program for communities. Every year a theme is selected and an environment festival is organized for schools and communities. The program entails tree planting in schools by establishing tree nurseries, construction of energy saving stoves for schools and households, training of environment education clubs, organizing environment education festivals among others. Participate in our environment program by donating time, money and other resources to learn about our program. Contact environment education coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org we also encourage volunteer to come and work with us , share experiences and fuse ideas towards the green thinking concept.

Collaborative forest management
The Mabira women crafts groups is one such common interest group nurtured by mafico . the group brings together women from the seven parishes that make up Najjembe sub county from the several community interest groups. The crafts shop was developed off the kampala-jinja highway at the gateway to the Mabira ecotourism centre at Najjembe. The crafts from the different women groups are marked, labellled and marketed at this outlet here, targeting visitors to the ecotourism centre and the passing population along the highway. The group has developed capacities in natural colors formulation, craft materials identification and weaving, but needs to be taken to higher level bulk marketing of their products. At present arrangements that lead the group into” fair trade” are highly welcome. You can also volunteer with us and cause change in the lives of the forest women around Mabira.
We work with two local government health centres, Najjembe health centre 111 and Nagojje health centre 111. The two offer a range of services such as immunization, antenatal and postal natal counseling, general treatment of common sickness, HIV/AIDS counseling and community outreach programmes.
