1. PROJECT OVERVIEW
Tic-Ber, a community-based tree planting youth group, was initiated by a group of nine youths from Parubanga sub-county in Amuru, the district in the Northern region that experienced one of the longest wars in African history. It will focus on enhancing the capacity of youth in the fight against poverty through tree planting projects, which is an income generating activity. It is expected that through the provision of information and awareness-raising to the youth, it will be possible to have a direct positive effect on their well-being in the community. (TBCYG) will utilize volunteers, who are mainly youths from within Parubanga Sub County. Each volunteer will be expected to successfully participate in a 4 weeks tree planting training program at the beginning of their work with the project. This training program will provide basic tree planting skills to the youths. Volunteers who demonstrate proficiency during the initial training program will be invited to participate in an advanced training program to learn effective tree planting techniques. Each volunteer will be expected to contribute 3-5 hours each week and to continue with TBCYG for a period of not less than 6 months. TBCYG will operate with 6 (full and part time) staff members. In addition, a Governing Board made up of community leaders and staff will operate to provide overall sanctioning of the project's operation. Periodic evaluations will be conducted to assess the added value of TBCYG helping the volunteers to become effective educators, the development of new understandings / concepts on the part of local youth, and the improvement of the well-being of youth in Parubanga.

TBCYG was legally registered on 4th June 2010 by community development office of Amuru district. Enclosed please, find certificate of registration.

Because of this, people were displaced from their traditional homes which made them lose their lands and now have challenges to prove they are the rightful owners. Children’s education was affected, and economic activities drastically fell because of lost lands, which the owners should use for economic activities. Other problems faced in Parubanga include youth unemployment, HIV/AIDS, poor transport networks and low levels of income generating activities especially among the youth and lately, land fights. These are a big problem to the wellbeing of the people of Parubanga.

Tic Ber community youth group believe their intervention can help to reduce the unemployment issue by recruiting many youths to the project as administrators of the project, tree planters and maintainers, also training youths with skills in HIV/AIDS counseling and guidance, business skills and tree planting skills so that they may become employers of themselves in the future hope.

Through this project, the...
