Kauma Tree Planting
Tree Planting at Kauma Primary School
On 09th February 2022, Green Girls Platform in collaboration with Plan international Green Anglicans, Young Progressive Environmental Solutions, International Conservation and Clean up Management (ICCM), and Malawi Creation Care Network (MCCN) conducted a tree planting activity at Kauma primary school. 1000 tree seedlings were planted at the school and were purchased using the funds that were raised during the donate a tree raffle draw.
Kauma primary school was identified through the help of the Lilongwe city council using information that was provided by the ministry of education. The school was identified as one of the schools highly affected by deforestation in Lilongwe and for reforestation, approximately 6000 trees were needed. The school has a wildlife club that was engaged to take care of the planted trees and ensure maximum survival rate.
The function was graced by the presence of Councilor Heston Yohane Zybion who was the Guest of Honor where in his remarks he welcomed the development and promised to work hand in hand with the school and the community to ensure the trees planted survived.
- Trees were planted on the school campus by the guest of honor, Senior T/A, Head Teacher, and all representatives from the Partners. It was done to show their commitment to planting trees and leading by example to ensure maximum survival.
- A total of 1500 seedlings were planted instead of the initially planned 1000 making it a great success.
