Challenge

Due to limited funds for public schools in Uganda, majority of these schools have not funds to cater for tree planting in their own compounds. This tremendously exposes students to high temperatures during the dry season which makes it uncomfortable for them to study. As well during the rainy seasons, these schools are exposed to heavy storms which can blow down school buildings, which poses a risk to the lives of students

Solution

By massively planting trees in public schools, the following will be achieved:- 1. School Tree Planting projects help connect students to the benefits of trees and foster environmental stewardship. 2. Trees help moderate temperature and muffle noise. 3. Environmental benefits such as clean air and water. 4. They even help improve air quality by absorbing some airborne compounds that could be harmful to us, and by giving off oxygen.

Long-Term Impact

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION: The Green Schools Project (GSP) Tree Planting projects help connect students to the benefits of trees and foster environmental stewardship. Tree planting is a great way to increase student interest in their local environment and achieve academic goals. Each school tree planting provides educators with the opportunity to inspire school administrators, faculty and students to affect positive change at their schools and, in turn, their communities.
