Heal The Planet Global Organisation – HTP It gives us immense pleasure to contribute to this year’s Theme “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: Building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development.” . HTP is a civil society that holds Special Consultative Status with United Nations since 2017 and it is a Global Agency whose genesis resulted out of Universal minded ideas & Organizations to redefine the Global Agenda geared towards healing our World. We are focused towards mobilizing and inspiring communities in ensuring a Peaceful and Conflicts free world, Food security to fight World Famine, Poverty, Diseases, Abuse of Human Rights, and Illiteracy.
We are committed to Protecting the Environment, Climate, Conserving Wild and Aquatic Life; through advocacy and sensitization of groups to adopt environmental sustainability behaviors and engage people on how to overcome barriers, and to take effective action measures on climate change so as to bring smiles and hope to millions of Children, Women, Youth, Elderly and every one anywhere who is marginalized, compromised, denied or not in position to have a better life including refugees. During the COVID Lock down, HTP reached out to several organisations to raise funding to feed vulnerable groups affected by the pandemic, with support from old and new partners we reached out to more than 6000 families in 50 villages of Kampala and Wakiso in Uganda and provided food relief to enable such families run for a while with food since there daily activities which could bring daily income and food were on stand still. Together with SDGs Youth Coalition ( An umbrella 30 youth led organisations under the office of UN Resident Coordinator & Office of the Prime Minister of Uganda under SDG Secretariate) HTP recently had interaction with Uganda Head of State Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at State House Entebbe aimed at providing remedies to ending poverty amongst the youth as well as protecting the environment.
The State House of Uganda is exposing the Youth Coalition Members to demonstrating practical agriculture model learning aimed at utilising land for meaningful commercial farming. This is creating opportunities for youth and the people to have enough food to avoid dependence on government and donations in case of future threats like the lock down.
HTP and Youth Coalition recommends the following; 1) Let’s work from the bottom up because wealth is at the bottom of the pyramid. 2) Create jobs at home 3) Put emphasis to those who have started something help them to grow and train others. 4) Create markets within the region.
