Every Christmas, Uganda Little Hands Go Green celebrates the birth of Christ with a purpose, a purpose to save the environment by planting trees and a purpose to fight climate change through encouraging children to plant and not to cut trees.
As we enter into the Christmas festivities, Uganda Little Hands Go Green is yet again organizing the annual Green Xmas Party at Kololo Airstrip on December 18. The kid’s party will be used to create relevance and awareness regarding protecting the environment. Entrance is Ushs10, 000 per child while adults will enter for free.
Uganda Little Hands Go Green officials say the Green Xmas Party is a platform ‘to give children the opportunity to enjoy their childhood with meaningful environment conservation participation and above all celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
The biggest Green Xmas Party in East Africa that blends a celebration of Christmas with a celebration of the children's love for conservation of the environment will be graced by some of the country’s top artists. The event was in 2014 graced by the president of Uganda Yoweri Museveni.
President Museveni became the first president in Uganda’s history to plant a tree at Kololo airstrip where this great nation was born. He also did it in style with Uganda’s Little Hands go Green. He gave valuable lessons to the children, sang for them and promised to spend more time with them at the next Green Fest.
