Planting 15000 trees in Madagascar

Planting trees in the rainy season

We just got a short report via SMS (or text message) from our villages: “Students and community planted: 5,550 trees in the village of Fiarenana. In Fiadanana 556 trees were planted by students and the women’s group”. 

Taking advantage of the rainy season to plant trees is the best way to assure that the seedlings may take root. We hope to post some pictures after the rainy season, when the roads become passable again.

Last but not least: Bonus Day will start on Wed. March 14th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST.  GlobalGiving will be matching online donations made on Bonus Day at 30% until the $50,000 in funds runs out. Last time the funds ran out before the end of the day, so please think of Zahana in Madagascar early on Bonus Day.
