Tree Planting on Mount Kilimanjaro

Update on Tree Planting on Mount Kilimanjaro

Already five years running, this project is a collaboration of local Rotary Clubs in Tanzania, school children, and the Sustainable Global Gardens initiated through partnership with The Sustainability Trust, ESRAG's predecessor organisation of Rotarians supporting environmental sustainability.  The Rotary International of Great Britain and Ireland provides an update on the project in their February 2017 newsletter.

 

What had they accomplished by this time last year?  An estimated 8,500 trees were planted by about 7,500 students at the 25 participating schools.  Another 4,200 seedlings were distributed to students for planting in home gardens.  In addition to the benefits of the trees themselves, the project is building friendships and awareness of Rotary and the joy of Service Above Self.   Here are Project Reports from 2015 and 2016.
