Current Rotary news from Ghana, District 9110 indicates that the Rotary Club of Accra Labone over the weekend planted about 200 seedlings in a number of public basic schools in the Labone enclave.

The President of the club, Rotarian Yaw Korankye Abrokwa in a speech at the ceremony to plant the trees said the effort, apart from helping to green the environment and improve the quality of air, will when catered for to grow well, provide shade for pupils of the beneficiary schools and inculcate in them the crucial need to cultivate the habit of planting and nurturing trees. He was speaking while he led members of the club to the Kanda 3 & 5 Basic Schools and the Nima 1 & 2 Basic Schools in Accra where some of the trees were planted. He described the planting of trees as the club’s flagship project for the 2018/2019 year.  The club depended on support from philanthropists and used professional horticulturalists, who are also collaborators to supervise the planting of the seedlings of the ornamental trees. The horticulturists will also be in charge of supervising the pupil’s to nurture the plants to grow fully.
 
The Head teacher of the Kanda 3 & 5 Basic school, Mr. Emmanuel Omari-Afari, expressed joy at the intervention and said he could not wait to see the young trees grow to not only beautify the environment and help with its landscaping. He also reiterated that caring of the trees by the pupils will help build the critical desire to care for the trees and make them better adults in the future.
 
On behalf of the teachers of the school he expressed gratitude to Rotary Club of Accra Labone and promised to lead in taking good care of the trees.
 
Next week we will come up with an even more interesting program, let us all endeavor to attend and register for our meeting.
Let’s all continue to BE THE INSPIRATION!!!
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
