This project has been fully funded. Many thanks for your support!

A few highlights from the last year:

A well-equipped nursery opens

An entire new nursery was established in Butiama district early in 2019 to cope with the demand for trees. The inaugural ceremony took place on 4 October 2019 with more than 200 participants, including guest of honour Anna Rose Nyamubi, Butiama’s District Commissioner. Recently, a new solar water system was installed and brings water for the saplings from a pond 300 meters away. The system consists of a solar pump, two 5,000-litre tanks and four distribution points with taps.

Checking tree survival

The team visited two sites to evaluate how the trees you’re supporting are cared for. One family plot belongs to Amosi S, who has planted more than 3,500 timber and avocado trees. The trees are distributed across his plot, and he and his family take excellent care of them.

Getting kids engaged at a young age

The 550 students and 14 teachers at Ng’ereng’ere Primary School in Tarime district have planted 1,450 trees. During the dry season, students bring water to school to support the growing saplings that are now thriving.

Thank you for making this possible!
