Ahead of World Environment Day marked recently, we reached out to My Tree Initiative through their Twitter handle and asked them a few questions.
Below is the Q & A.
Question: How many trees would you say you have planted since you started this initiative?
Answer: It is not just about saying, but also ensuring they grow to maturity!
My Tree Initiative has planted nearly 700,000 trees in 3 years. And has greened 95 schools.
Question: Across the country?
Answer: Yes: 700, 000 across the country.
Question: Against what target?
Answer: Our target is to plant a million more trees by the end of this year:- through our flagship program named: #milliontreechallenge
Question: What else is there to admire about this initiative?
Answer: And through our Remember Me book of tree dedications, where we capture names and stories and all Ugandans we’ve lost to COVID-19 and each name written is planted a tree for.
