Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Deforestation

Trees are naturary present in our environment because of so many reasons, One of which is to preserve and protect the environment from contamination. The reason is ignored and so many people are seen depleting and cutting down the available tree cover in the country which covers upto one to three percent (3%) low against the 10% minimum required by the united nations environmental programme and end up not planting more. Forests have been cut down leaving bare land for fuel and timber purposes. The government must Initiate and encourage its citizens to use other means of cooking fuels other than wood since that is destruction of the environment on high rate and alarming or enforce the cut one plant(2) two rule.
