With our partners in Wakalenge we grew several hundred fruit tree seedlings and established an orchard in ten schools and several communities. Recently with the wet rain season we are growing new seedlings and looking for new partner schools while continuing to visit established sites.
"Introducing pupils to climate change has equipped them with the practicability of taking care of the trees and the ecosystems around their schools because you have a practical climate series curriculum. The trees you have donated and planted, are already providing us with shade and the pupils and teachers are enjoying fruits harvested from them” - Mr. Magala Derrick, Deputy Head teacher St Henry’s Educational Centre
The greatest joy for us as GirlsForClimateAction is seeing former students becoming leaders in their communities. Among families and communities, awareness has grown and changed the way people perceive their relationship to the environment
