Barnard Health is proud to support TIST Uganda.
The TIST Uganda project is a reforestation project spanning much of Southwest Uganda working with small farm groups to reforest and plant trees in a heavily deforested landscape. The project itself consists of 1,563 small farm plots from 291 farmer groups with 1662 individual members. Uganda is one of the most heavily deforested countries in the world, with a 2008 study predicting that there may be no forest remaining by 2050. The TIST project is a green exception to that.
TIST Uganda, addresses all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
