Fighting for the Future

HeroTREE farmers arrive for a 2019 project update
HeroTREE farmers arrive for a 2019 project update

Welcome to your latest HeroTREEs update!

Quarter 1 of 2020 started with a celebration of all of the successes from 2019 and in early January we were delighted to welcome all of our farmers together to provide them with a project update and payment for their hard work.

All of our farmers were delighted to catch up with colleagues from other nurseries and share their experiences with each other; our Kisosa group farmers reported successes with growing on several indiginous tree species such as Bridelia micrantha, Syzigium guineeense and Ficus sycomorus whilst the Choma Street nursery had some 1700 healthy seedlings to manage.

Thanks to your donations, local farmers are able to plant a wide variety of trees which will  safeguard the forest, and the local communities who rely upon it, by reducing greenhouse gases.

In addition to a 2019 update we're delighted to say that Q1 2020 started well with 90 new farmers trained and welcomed into our HeroTREEs family. Farmers in Ruvuma, Mgambazi, Tulo, Choma and Kisosa joined existing farmers and project managers to learn all about nursery management including how to pick out seedlings and nurture healthy specimens. 

APOPO & COVID-19

For Q2 of 2020 we can't ignore the elephant in the room - COVID-19.

As organisations that serve some of the world’s most vulnerable communities, APOPO has a duty to continue humanitarian missions with a priority for the safety and wellbeing of our staff and the families that depend on us. Here at APOPO we, and our partner Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania, are adjusting how we work in line with the latest national government and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance to keep working as much as possible while ensuring we keep everyone safe. 

We wish you and your families, dear supporter, the best of health during this uncertain time.
