Today, Tubepoka Development Initiative (TDI)launched 2019 tree planting season under “Planting Hope” project being spearheaded by Maria Nachilale together with local churches in Chisansu, Bukanga and Naching’anda communities. 23 VNRMCs in these areas with support from TDI have raised over 120,000 tree seedlings to be planted this year 2019. These communities used to look evergreen and beautiful with fresh air, clean water, fruits, honey ..mention it, but now all the glory is lost due to extravagant timber harvesting, wanton bush fires, you name it. Given the situation, TDI believes that not all hope is lost. Together we can make our communities greater again. Conserve the environment, Plant a tree, conserve water, be patriotic.
