We are a non profit environmental organization working towards the conservation and protection of the environment while achieving sustainable development.
Our mission is to strengthen the capacity of communities to utilize their resources to achieve sustainable, economic and environmental benefits.
ECE strengthens the ability of the government, local and urban communities and other local partners to steward environmental conservation. We work with our community partners to find creative, consensus-based solutions to protecting our natural and cultural heritage.
Rising levels of poverty have coerced people to turn to their natural resources indiscriminately exploiting them without taking any measures to conserve them in the true spirit of sustainable development.
This has led to enormous wastes being generated, deforestation, and degradation of agricultural land among others. This in turn has aggravated the levels of poverty, diseases and misery amidst uncertainty among the people.
Government efforts to get the people out of poverty are of insurmountable acknowledgement let alone the numerous Civil society organizations efforts to complement such efforts.
Nevertheless, a lot needs to be done as far as conserving our environment is concerned. We continue to pledge our support to the communities and all stakeholders as we work towards a sustainable earth.

ECE is proud to be a force to reckon with in this struggle and it is proud of the successes it has achieved in its years of operation and in the work of conservation especially working with schools and communities in Eastern Uganda.
