Early in July, at the start of the rainy season, our students were privileged to plant trees as part of Ethiopia’s Green Legacy program to invigorate the country’s landscape. This was thanks to a grant from ChariTree Foundation, an environmental education cause and registered Canadian charity. Their goal is to help children understand their place in nature and how each person can help renew the health of our planet by planting trees.
The students and teachers planted on the grounds of their own future school in nearby Hayat. Imagine being a teacher and standing under a tree that you tell your students you planted when you were their age!
We encourage you to visit ChariTree’s website to support the good work they do around the world. They have certainly blessed us with a great start to 2021 and a mission to renew our planet for years to come. Thank you ChariTree!
