Interview with Robert Isingoma, CECOD Director

The organization Community Efforts for Community Development (CECOD) from Uganda is the winner of the Land for Life Award.

More than 85 percent of Ugandans live in rural areas, making their livelihoods from the land. But over the years the school system has become increasingly academic. Concerned with increasing knowledge of sustainable development, CECOD has turned children into agents of change in rural communities through creating a network of eco-schools, training of over 7,500 teachers and involving 34,700 children in micro projects, such as organic farming and water harvesting.
