Green Youth Conservation Uganda joins Entebbe Police ground re-greening spree

Green Youth Conservation Uganda (GYCU), a community based non-profit organization with a bias to preserve nature has partnered with the local community in Entebbe to re-green the Entebbe Police play ground.

Youth in Entebbe Division A from the areas of Lunyo, Katabi, Virus and the surrounding areas embarked on the grueling exercise of re-greening the Entebbe Police play ground.

Led by Innocent Hashashya, these youth tilled the surface and planted the grass before Green Youth Conservation Uganda came on board with grass portions, water and lunch for the youth planting the grass.

Green Youth Conversation Uganda is registered with Entebbe municipal council under the statue of the local government act under the chairmanship of Lawrence Kayima and Jovan Baryamujura.

“We are re-greening the Entebbe Police play ground as a result of a joint effort from all the willing youth. We call upon more support from the Police and Entebbe Municipality leaders to help especially with the fencing to avoid by-passers (individuals and cars) who have always created footpaths. We also need black soil, more grass and fertilizers to finish up the work” Hasashya noted.

In Entebbe Municipality, the re-grounding drives started with Entebbe Works Playground, Bugonga Fisheries Institute play-ground, Kiwafu, Katabi – Busambaga and lately Nakiwogo-Banga play ground.

The Tanda Community play ground has been also graded although the re-greening exercise has been halted following serious land woes.

In Katabi sub-county, the Nkumba University play-ground was also re-greened by former students.

In the country, other facilities re-greened include King George Stadium – Tororo, Uganda Clays Playground – Kajjansi, Gadaffi – Jinja, MUBS – Nakawa playground, Wampewo – Gayaza road, Kiryandongo Booma and many others.
