In view of the massive deforestation around the world and in The Gambia in particular, the charity has decided to launch a large tree planting exercise at our three rural schools, with a small number of trees at the urban schools. The plan is to plant an orchard at Kumbija, Loumen and Jamwelly with Pomegranate trees, mango, orange and lime varieties too. The pupils are being taught about the importance of trees with an emphasis on oxygen and helping to control soil erosion. One of our schools has gone so far as to paint the "Importance of Trees" poster we gave all the pupils on the side of one of the school buildings - how cool is that?!?!
