Over 50,000 trees!
It was encouraging to see the efforts of the student environmental groups in establishing tree nurseries and planting trees. Overall, the project is proving to be successful in getting students involved in environmental activities and in planting trees on their campuses and at home.
The project has had varying levels of success in different schools depending on the level of student motivation and the responsiveness of the teachers to get involved and help oversee ad guide the student initiative.
Over 50,000 trees have been transplanted in the first phase of planting over 30 schools since the project started in November 2010. We are continuing to follow-up with the school groups and will continue to offer support to strengthen the initiative and maintain the momentum.
