Young girls from the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Nyaluwanga and learners of Livimbo Primary School in Nkhata Bay and Lilongwe respectively, have been trained in tree planting and tree nursery management.
The Programme Support Manager (PSM) for YONECO, Hughes Munthali, stated that the orientation will go a long way in ensuring that young people are able to mobilize themselves in tree planting activities.
This is part of YONECO’s planned activities under the 2019/2020 National Forestry Season. The season commenced on 15th December, 2019 and will end on 15th April, 2020. The main objective of the season is to build a responsible citizenry that cares for trees and forests for the sustenance of present and future generations.
