Organization Overview

Last year I have been in Uganda with the „Shades of Grey Parrots“-Group – organized by Elaine Henley(animal behaviourist). The group wants to stop the poaching of African Grey Parrots, by helping to establish an ECO-Tourism in this beautiful country, to offer people a (financial) alternative to poaching.

Last year I have been in Uganda with the „Shades of Grey Parrots“-Group – organized by Elaine Henley(animal behaviourist). The group wants to stop the poaching of African Grey Parrots, by helping to establish an ECO-Tourism in this beautiful country, to offer people a (financial) alternative to poaching. Unfortunately this year the trip had to be canceled (been postponed to next year) due to Corona.

The whole group noticed as a „point to improve“ after the trip: Water can only be used in form of „bottled water“ there (drinking, brush your teeth, etc.), as it too impure.

This does not only create huge amounts of plastic waste, but people's lives are extremely dependent on the supply of water from outside – especially during the Corona-time not very easy.

To reduce the problem for our next trip, I met our fantastic Tourguide (Johnnie Kamugisha) beginning of this year on a tourism fair in Belgium and we agreed that he will organize big glas-containers to be installed in the trucks and I organize drinking bottles made of stainless steel for all participants.

I’m sure Johnnie & his wife Agnes would also support us, but they are not a NON

After my trip I’ve done some researches on water-filtering systems and found e.g. the water-backpack PAUL (developed by University Kassel in Germany), which is used e.g. in some areas in India.

There are also other possibilities for water-filtering systems available, but especially PAUL would be able to filter a huge amount of water in a very small time (non electric, so could be used everywhere)

I’m sure that also Johnnie & his wife Agnes would also support us, but they are not a NON-PROFIT organization.

So there are a lot of things to be considered to fit into the Improving lives fund – guess you can give good support, as you are already experienced.
