About the Project




Objectives / Highlights


All of the sites are currently treeless resulting in a harsh environment for learning, sport, games and even resting. Most schools in the settlement are fenced, which would protect the trees from livestock and fire. This will allow planting of some long-duration species like mahogany, which will be protected in this fenced, managed setting.


The schools have iron sheet roofs and heat up dramatically, creating high temperatures that are a challenge for teaching and learning. Shade trees will be strategically placed around the school to shield it from the Sun.


The trees will help in regreening the area, providing the refugees with an enhanced environment, shade and resting area, fruits for consumption and improved socio-economic health.
