Neil and Zimm planting their first tree

A good friend of mine (Dr. Sexius) told me last night “until you plant the first tree, then the project is not successful”. But the success of the project is much more than planting trees — the process of propagating peace requires partnership among many stakeholders. Ownership of the project by the farmers and the rest of the community is vital to the success of the project. Today 400 trees were distributed and planted by the farmers of the Grade Ravine river. We planted the first tree: after all our hard work, this was an exciting moment for the entire project. Enjoy the videos and the photos.
