Plant 9000,000 Fruit Trees.

 Why I have decided to plant 9,000,000 fruit trees.

Unless it’s a fruit tree, its tough to find it standing in my community. We all undeniably know that being around trees makes us feel connected and alive. Trees take carbon out of the atmosphere, foster localized cooling and help mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Uganda has lost an average of 122000 hectares of forests every year due to large-scale tree-cutting for timber and charcoal-burning.

Each of us has a sole and co-operative responsibility to reforest our planet and restore biodiversity. This is why I have decided to plant 9000000 fruit trees.

Can you plant a tree in your community too?

"Small acts when multiplied by millions of people can transform the world"

we are calling all women and men to stand and plant a tree. Together we can restore biodiversity from our spheres of leadership. We can leave a better world for future generations.
