1 million trees planted in Uganda.
Are you with us?

Act Africa Now is a small but powerful environmental project under Mamyba Arts Foundation founded in 2013 in Kampala, Uganda.

We focus on improving environmental conditions in vulnerable slum communities. These areas suffer from limited green spaces, degraded soil with plastic and sewage, and constant flooding threats due to the absence of trees and clogged drainage.

Act Africa Now believes:
IF communities get trees, plant care knowledge, and understand the environmental and health benefits,

THEN communities can improve soil quality, grow their own food, and reduce the risk and impact of flooding. Together, we’re building a more resilient future with communities.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your support whether through financial contributions, volunteering your time, or connecting us with valuable resources. Let’s plant 1 million trees together.

What were working on right now:

Planting trees between crops, known as agroforestry, offers several significant benefits for farms. At Ewaka Mixed Farm, our flagship demonstration farm, you will notice trees dotted every few meters. A mango tree can be found next to the tomato patch, while the pawpaw offers shade to the soursop seedlings.
At Ewaka Mixed Farm in Kayunga, an initiative of Mambya Arts, we are using garlic water to spray on plants as an organic pest control. Aphids and cabbage bugs, especially, are repelled by garlic water. We will also use it to minimize bacteria and pests entering the greenhouses we are developing. A foot tray with garlic water will be placed at the entrance for all shoes to step in before entering!
100km from Kampala lies a 100 acre jewel in organic farming – Ewaka Demonstration Farm, the flagship farm, orchard, and training site of Mambya Art Foundation. The farm cultivates over 50 varieties of vegetables, fruit trees, and herbs, alongside goat farming.
