100 000 trees planted by the end of 2023
This campaign aims not only to introduce children to the culture of environmental protection and nature conservation, but also and above all to make them actively participate in the fight against climate change by planting 100,000 trees by the end of 2023.
Climate change is one of the most existential crisis to humanity. Scientists all agree that this coming decade is key to maintain this World livable. Trees, the dominant inhabitants of the diverse and complex ecological systems called forests, are among the world’s largest and most efficient living storehouses of carbon monoxide, the “greenhouse gas” most responsible for the earth’s temperature rise and changes in the planet’s climate.
While Africa is among the continent emitting very less greenhouse gas compared to industrialized countries, we, as a continent are to play a vital role in protecting and preserving our vast tropical rainforests.
As Groupe Utalii Kwetu, we are working on a goal to plant 100 000 trees with children by not only help to absorb tons of Co2 but also to win the minds of our kids, the next generation of Congolese people, who ought to protect and preserve our tropical rainforest, one of lungs of the World.
From the air, the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) stretch as far as the eye can see, broken only by distant, shining ribbons of rivers and streams. Dense, deep, seemingly impenetrable, the forests of the Central African region extend over 200 mn hectares, inspiring awe and sometimes dread among residents and visitors, and providing refuge for everything from rare and endangered plants and animals to ferocious militias accused of brutal crimes against humanity
It is difficult to imagine that such vast ancient woodlands are at risk of extinction. But they are disappearing at an alarming rate.
According to the global forest watch, from 2001 to 2021, Republic of Congo lost 909kha of tree cover, equivalent to a 3.4% decrease in tree cover since 2000, and 537Mt of CO₂e emissions. At this rate, the Congolese forest will disappear at the turn of this century causing unequal waves to the global weather.
Preserving Dr Congo’s surviving tropical forests and planting new trees to replace those lost to deforestation could help reduce the severity of climate change by absorbing more carbon from the air, and ease the local impact of climate change by regulating local weather conditions.
It costs us 2 $ to plant a tree, we count on your generation donation to save our planet.
