Zoe Foundation Activities

About us

Zoe Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded in 2014. It is a legally registered and certified organisation with a permit to operate it’s objectives within and outside Uganda.

Zoe is the Greek word for Life.

Mission: To promote integrated initiatives for peace, and development in the target areas.

Vision: A peaceful and Social-Economically self-reliant community.

Environmental Protection is the organisation’s core objective which drives the daily operations. Zoe, defines Environmental Protection beyond the scope of nature conservation. It broadly includes areas of social justice, capacity building for self-reliance, societal-environment health, promotion of modern and diversified farming among others. We are stewards that see creation through the compassionate eyes of the God who empowers the weak and makes common cause with the most vulnerable.  It is only as servants of earth community that we avoid paternalism. Hence, the organisation is not only a steward to resources in ways that generate sustainability for earth’s resources but also in ways that sustain life for the poor and vulnerable groups like the disabled, women, children, and the youth.
It goes beyond meeting the minimum environmental requirements to create smart, safe and sustainable solutions for challenges faced by the community.


Environmental challenges have been caused by irresponsible stewards of nature. The current ecological crises threatening global climate stability, the ozone layer, and the diversity of plant and animal species. Ecological problems also include the pollution of air, the despoiling of land, the degradation of fresh water, and threats to the health of the oceans.The loss of forests and arable land. As a result, tremendous implications for food security, diseases, poverty, and unemployment to mention but a few are skyrocketing. The solution to the environmental challenges is, need for a collective transformation of society with acts of love and kindness towards all creation nourished by the fountain of God’s Grace. We believe that everything in our arena comes as responsibility: the earth, income, time, assets, talents, and our very selves. Individual lifestyles, governing policies and laws must corporate towards advocating for excellent environmental stewardship systems.


At Zoe, we believe that all individuals are stewards on earth and function with the mind of multiplication and co- creation as opposed to destruction, oppression and neglect. We see anew the purpose of lives within the context of God’s larger purpose for the world. We understand the creator’s vision of creation hence embrace it with responsibility and exercise our stewardship towards the cause. With this mind set, Zoe sees a more sustained, peaceful and harmonious environment for the now and next generation.


Genesis 1:28

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


From the above scripture, the Hebrew word for dominion does not mean “to dominate” or “to exploit”. Rather, it means “to take responsibility for.” Zoe knows that all individuals are called to be partners with the source and sustainer of life, creator and at the same time, taking responsibility for all creation.
