Currently the world is faced with unprecedented disasters ranging from floods in Haiti and Europe, hailstone in Europe scorching sunshine in Canada wild fires in Algeria, Turkey Greece Tunisia Calfonia Morocco to mention but a few.
A few of the old folks are responsible for the destruction of our environment. And it will be the young people to rehabilitate and restore the environment.
The reason why we created this forum is to connect the young people from all corners of the world to plant trees so that our environment can become better.
This program is designed to create connections between schools and schools in different countries, The ultimate goal of this idea is to create awareness and share experience in environment issues with intention of finding solutions. This friendship will be a global collective undertaking to contribute to conservation efforts. The program will be field based and sharing will be online where student from different countries what they have done and experience on conservation so that the other friends can learn from one another.

How it Works
Our online platform allows students to share activities being undertaken and experience from their respective countries. They share photos, stories of activities done by each friend
Each friend plants a tree for another friend. Friends will sponsor a tree planted and tagged with his/her preferred name. Friends from each country will plant a tree every year for the friend from another country.
A student can have as many friends as they can either from one country or different countries.
Each tree planted is named after the friend in another country, the trees is tagged e.g Martin-1_ Ug-2021….
This activity is not limited to schools from country to country but schools within the same country can adopt the same approach.
Trees can as well be planted in memory of a family member friend and named after that person.
