Celebrating World Environment Day: Our Weekend of Action and Impact

This World Environment Day, we took significant steps to combat deforestation and desertification through a series of impactful activities. It was a busy and fulfilling weekend, filled with learning, community engagement, and hands-on tree planting.

On Friday, we had the privilege of attending an event organized by FABEL Foundation at The Center for Women and Adolescent Empowerment. The event featured several presentations by experts who raised awareness on crucial topics such as land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience.

We learned a great deal from these experts and were also allowed to share our story. The exchange of knowledge and experiences was incredibly enriching. To support their efforts, we donated 20 trees to be planted at the centre, contributing to the local green space and demonstrating our commitment to environmental sustainability.

The weekend's activities didn't stop there. On Saturday and Sunday, we teamed up with the Yola chapter of the Muslim Council to plant trees in various neighbourhoods. Together, we planted an impressive 173 trees across three communities.

The enthusiasm and support from community members were truly inspiring. Residents eagerly joined us in the planting activities, demonstrating their commitment to improving their local environment. This collaborative effort was a resounding success and serves as a powerful motivator for us to continue our work.

This weekend's activities are a small step in our ongoing journey to combat climate change and restore our environment. Each tree planted is a symbol of hope and a step towards a greener, more sustainable future.

We are deeply motivated by the positive response from the communities we work with and the collective effort to make a difference. While the journey is long and the challenges are many, we are committed to persevering. Our work this weekend is a testament to the impact we can achieve when we come together with a shared purpose.

As we celebrate World Environment Day, we are reminded of the critical importance of our mission. We invite you to join us in our efforts. Whether through donations, volunteering, or spreading the word, your support is invaluable. Together, we can take bold steps to combat environmental degradation and create a sustainable future.
