The reforestation efforts in both of our villages, still has widespread community support! As part of the celebration for International Women’s Day on March 8, 2013 a group tree planting has become an integral part of celebrations in the villages.
The fact that tree planting has become a tradition and is not just seen as a one-time Zahana inspired event, illustrates for us how successful this approach has been. In addition to tree planting by the women of the villages (as seen in the photos), they also had a parade and traditional dancers with drumming. In the village of Fiarenana the women’s soccer club played a soccer game.
