Tree Adoption Uganda (TAU) is a youth led social enterprise that seeks to jointly address the challenges of youth unemployment and climate change.
TAU has a vision of transforming environmental interventions into a means of creating sustainable socio-economic development, proactively alleviate poverty in communities and nurture growth of socially responsible businesses.
TREE CAPITAL: The Tree Capital program will enable Ugandan youth with agri-business ideas in rural communities to access startup capital and provide them with a Mobile Based Agri-business training, Information and Financial record management tool (MOBFIT) to enable them set up their own agribusiness enterprises. Each youth who will undergo the program will actually set up a business of his/her own choosing in her community to financially empower him/herself and create more opportunity in the community.
Tree Capital is an innovation by Tree Adoption Uganda (TAU); a youth led Non-Government Organization that seeks to jointly address youth unemployment, climate change and reduce rural-urban migration by creating local economies in rural communities. We leverage on creatively using environmental conservation activities like tree planting that help corporate companies to offset carbon as a platform to provide the much needed startup capital for young people with business ideas.
