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:

Are you currently engaged in the environmental sector in Uganda? We want to hear from you! We’re mapping environmental projects for knowledge-sharing and collaboration.
One year later, it is a testament to their hard work and enthusiasm to protect their environment that trees are still alive despite the challenges of unhealthy soil, goats eating anything, hungry ducks, flooding, and being uprooted by humans.
Revisiting the Kira Police Station Barracks site nearly a year after Act Africa Now planted trees with police officers, showed just how much trees can grow when given the right care and circumstances.
