In today’s dynamic world, success can only be achieved through hard
work, ability, skill and know-how. All these call for manpower
development, organizational adjustment and organizational adaptability.

We are a fundraising arm of Earthsavers Movement Uganda Chapter – an indigenous NGO. The firm is staffed with able consultants in the fields of projects and general management, finance, computer science, agriculture, economics, gender analysis, disability, community based rehabilitation, participatory approaches, micro finance, poverty alleviation, training needs assessment, education, cultural heritage, environment protection, strategic planning, social mobilization, sustainable development strategies, NGO landscape, income generating activities and the entire social sector in general.
The main thrust of our very existence is to assist our clients in developing and improving their skills in the fields mentioned above. Doing the work calls for various methods and activities ranging from process consulting to task consulting. We also organize and conduct workshops when there is need.
ERCB’s permanent and semi – permanent consultants have carried out several assignments. We have worked for Government Ministries and International. Our input to various organizations has created positive change and we are using their expertise to review and improve other organizations and projects.
Types of assignments
Our consultants have assisted many companies and organizations in writing feasibility studies. They have also offered investment advise to clients in order to ensure that the clients are not left alone. Their success is our pride. It is cost effective to conduct feasibility rather than implementing a project without a feasibility check. The results could be disastrous.

We conduct environmental audits at the level of project formulation and/or completion. The latter is applicable when National Environment Authority (NEMA) calls for the same.
