Thanks Giving To The Ngo Project

The village elders were assisted by the NGO by donating seeds in the village. Further trees are useful to our life since they are of the water catchment areas. Trees are not only useful to us but to animals as well. They act as animal homes for example birds and monkeys. Trees also offer fresh air to us. Most of us depend on trees for timber. If we avoid deforestation we might benefit very much Timber is used in home making . Some people in our village are fond of stealing trees from forests. From the help of the NGO soldiers from the K.W.S who are now guarding the forest.We thank the project and ask it to help more. More so we are now saying in a conclusive environment.
