Mixing up Bio gas materials

Biogas typically refers to a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Organic waste such as dead plant and animal material, animal feces, and kitchen waste can be converted into a gaseous fuel called biogas.

Shielded Stoves

This type of stove provides wood saving of at least 50 percent. The stove can be produced sustainable using the local resources and expertise.

Welcome to EcodaUganda

Environmental Concerns and Orphanage Development Agency was formed in 2007 as a voluntary, Non-profitable making and Non-governmental organization. It was registered with the Uganda NGO Board in November 2008(Reg. No. S.5914/7779).

ECODA was further incorporated as a company limited by Guarantee in September 2010 (Reg. No. 204075). ECODA’s vision is to ensure a sustainable use of the Environment through disseminating improved mechanisms and to provide orphaned children of Uganda a healthy, caring and loving environment.

ECODA’s mission is to mobilize the needy people of Uganda for environmental conservation and development activities. The focus is on environmental protection through efficient energy saving stoves, solar energy, Biogass, tree planting and other sustainable models of conservation.

Energy saving technologies

  In order to ensure a sustainable Environment, ECODA has involved the community as being part of the Environment. Community mobilization is a process of organizing concerned citizens for collective action towards a common purpose with the aim of facilitating change. Therefore the community is sensitized about the negative impacts affecting the Environment and measures are discussed together.

However, one of the measures has been the promotion of the improved energy saving stoves, tree planting and mitigation of climate change. ECODA has carried out stove training in Bugiri district and Hoima district with the support from GOAL UGANDA.

ECODA was also supported by NAADS chairman in Namayumba Sub county, Wakiso district and they spread stoves to 43 homesteads. In July 2010, Agency for Accelerated Regional Development (AFARD) also supported ECODA to train 216 beneficiaries from Nebbi, Zombo, Arua, Yumbe and Moyo districts in stove construction.

ECODA also received a contract from GIZ-Energy programme in post stove dissemination in Kabale, Rakai and Tororo districts which involved repair of cracks, replacement of broken stoves , construction of new stoves as well as guiding stove builders in forming commercial stove producer’s groups in 2011 where by 12,000 homesteads were reached with stoves.

The alarming energy crisis in the Uganda provided a condusive entry point for an integrated household-level biogas program. ECODA started introducing the Biogas activity in 2011 where by the potential for household biogas digesters was based on the easy accessibility of the equivalent of at least 20 kg of animal manure available per day and easy accessibility of water. Within last year a total of 20 homes purchased the biogas in Rakai, Masaka and Sembabule districts.

Increased Rural water suppy

and sanitation facilities The absence of safe water sources in Uganda is still a key problem, and households identify water supply as a priority. Between 2004 and 2008; the median collection time for water was 30 minutes and the time saved by the children from fetching water from long distances permits them to attend to school.

For some households, the distances and time are much longer; a study in Eastern Uganda found that households were spending 660 hours a year on water collection. Average water consumption ranges from 12 to 14 litres/person/day in rural areas, compared to a national target of 20 litres/person/day.

ECODA has implemented a number of activities which include among others: 12 rain water harvesting tanks in homes of beneficiaries who successfully mobilized and sensitized the community about the proper storage of water and sanitation practices since 2009.  Find Out More...
