The village of Nabitende depend mostly on trees for their livelihood, feeding and energy. The trees are used for practically everything in their day to day lives; Charcoal, firewood, shelters, food etc.

Because of this high dependency on trees, a lot of trees are cut and none planted in replacement. This is causing severe depletion of the trees and if something is not done, the people of Nabitende face deforestation and subsequent loss of their major source of income.

All cooking is done on open wood and charcoal fires. Therefore solar cookers and other green technologies are needed.

The Iganga District is located in eastern Uganda, just north of the equator at latitudes 1o 00' S-1o 06' N and longitudes 33o 57' E-33o 12' E. Mean annual rainfall is approximately 1 250 mm occurring on 100-130 days per annum and is mainly associated with the equatorial troughs in April-May and September-November.

The rapidly growing rural population has expanded the frontiers of agriculture into natural forest and wetland ecosystems. The District now experiences more frequent local droughts, faster drying up of water springs during the dry season
