We believe that a healthy ecosystem and thriving biodiversity are essential for every community. We are all a part of this quest and in Tanzania, we have started a reforestation project to contribute to this objective.
Desertification is a big issue in the area. It is caused mostly by human activity and lack of alternative practices when it comes to agriculture. Soil erosion worsens every year, and contributes to lower farming outcomes, and an increase in the annual floodings from the nearby river which have destroyed homes and crops.
Local schools and leaders of the area have started working on a Tree planting project to mitigate these issues. Their idea is that tree-planting is a sustainable solution to these problems that will contribute to a healthier environment. We want to support them and help accelerate this initiative that will also contribute to our global environmental challenges.
The plan: more than 10,000 trees will be grown by students of a local Secondary School and transplanted along the riverbank and throughout the community. The students have set up an environmental club that is coordinating these efforts, supported by their teachers, and have already started working.
One tree at a time, the students are reforesting the area!
On the side, awareness campaigns in the community will be conducted so that this initiative is appreciated and cared for by everyone who will benefit from it.
