CECOD - Conservation Efforts for Community Development
You are welcome to CECOD home page, as we invite you to work with us in the struggle to realize the new vision of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) through schools; targeting all social groups for a common and sustainable future.

For the last 10 years, CECOD has been in a school of global thoughts with a conviction to translate global visions into local actions so as to improve people's quality of life; focusing on the young generation and grass-root communities.

CECOD acknowledges that "Today's" effects of climate change are as a result of mistakes that were made by the recent past generation; and notes with concern, that more severe consequences are to befall the future generation resulting from the mistakes of the present generation. There is urgent need to break this viscous cycle of inter generation transfer of natural resource destruction.

Whereas the key to reverse the trend largely lies in the hands of green house gas emitters, CECOD finds it imperative to bring the present young generation and local communities at the center of climate change adaptation and mitigation at all levels. It is against this background, that all CECOD development programmes are based on the Eco School concept using a community based approach. This home page therefore, shares with you CECOD experiences, best practices, aspirations and challenges in an effort to make our "mother" earth a good place to live in.

Once again, welcome to our home page and you are welcome to join the CECOD family. "For Life to Continue, the Earth MUST Continue Living"

Eco- Community Volunteer Scheme (ECOVOS) was conceived by CECOD in 2010 to fill the gap that exists in university graduates as a result of examination oriented and theoretical education system in Ugandan institutions of learning. The scheme enables university graduates to learn on job to become job creators rather than job seekers with maximum exposure in the course of working with communities.
The scheme is based on the principles of Education for Sustainable Development focusing on enhancing the volunteers reflective and action competence to contribute towards social transformation, Economic development and environmental sustainability among local communities as they acquire the required skills and experience.

The program is currently working in the of Mbarara, Bushenyi, and Isingiro districts of western Uganda. The scheme has assisted in training a number of graduates both international and local from institutions of higher learning in the region. The scheme is ongoing, continuous and enrolls international volunteers once a year and local volunteers after six months.


ECOVOS is in place to fill the gap between theoretical education of university graduates and the need for practical experience for their future jobs, empower graduates and communities in Environmental Education and Sustainable Development.
