In recent years, the effects of climate change have greatly impacted people in sub-Saharan Africa. Long periods of drought, water shortages (such as in Cape Town), violent thunderstorms and floods (cyclone Idai in Malawi and Mozambique) are challenges that must be tackled. Harvests are often destroyed which strongly affects the underprivileged.
One of the most important ways to arm oneself against this is through education. Children and young people must be given the opportunity to understand climate change and develop coping strategies.
Through the planting project, young people should be given the chance to acquire knowledge and put it into practice. For this reason, in addition to the donation of trees, financial resources are also made available for workshops and seminars. By planting trees in schools, every child can follow the trees’ growth and development.
