With a keen interest in Lake Victoria, Saving Earth Africa (savingearthafrica.org) through the iElevate campaign has partnered with organizations like Ecomak Recyclers, Uganda wildlife Conservation Education Center, Lake Victoria Region Local Authorities Corporation, The Scholar, Youth Go Green, Africa Network Forum, Ehega Bioeneegy to amplify its message in regards to environmental protection.
This is especially through proper solid waste management, owing to the fact that much of the solid waste, if not properly managed and disposed off, ends up in Lake Victoria, hence causing pollution.
The iElevate movement is united by a shared belief that all children and young people should be supported and empowered to make a positive difference on the issues that affect their lives, their communities, and broader societies.
The campaign, which is scheduled to be unveiled on 5th November 2021 at Entebbe Zoo (UWEC) will address both social and environmental challenges including; pollution, green jobs and youth inclusion.
The iElevate campaign is a collaboration of organisations and young iElevate ambassadors and champions from all backgrounds across Uganda particularly universities as well as high schools.
The iElevate campaign in partnership with major Local Governments will see recycled iElevate garbage bins set-up within urban centers and offices.
The young leaders of Saving Earth Africa, through the iElevate campaign are proclaiming remarkable leadership roles.
The initiative intends to curb down the pollution of Lake Victoria and the organization found it necessary to create a defence team whose role is to influence change amongst young people and the public at large.
Notably, much of the solid waste entering Lake Victoria is generated from industries, markets, restaurants, slums among other places and economic activities carried out around the drainage area.
The poor solid waste management all over the Lake Victoria Basin Region facilitates the pollution entering the lake. This impact stretches to as far as Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia, and all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
