Forming Leaders in Integral Ecology for Rural Transformation in Uganda

Who Are We?

BLI is a response to three major challenges in Uganda: environmental degradation, food insecurity, and poverty.

 

Inspired by Pope Francis's encyclical letter Laudato Si', BLI is based in the practice of Integral Ecology and actively works toward the seven Laudato Si' goals. We recognize the inherent connection between the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor, and our program equally recognizes the importance of education, environmentalism, and sound economics.

Our Three Pillars

“I want to be a part of the change I want to see, mainly the restoration of Mother Earth.”
