Rights and Advocacy Initiatives Network joins school children and community members to plant 250 seedling on Green Ghana Day
The Rights and Advocacy Initiatives Network (RAIN) marked the 2022 Green Ghana Day by joining school children and members at Abuabugya and Okyerekrom in the Atwima Mponua District of Ashanti Region to plant 250 seedlings.
The Seedlings which were supplied by the Nkawie District of the Forest Services Division of the Forestry Commission included Mahogany and Ofram.
Mrs. Doreen Asuming-Yeboah, Director of RAIN, expressed worry at the rate of losses of forests and called for the inclusion of the future generation in all forest intervention programmes.
She reiterated that Forest is the surest way to mitigate climate change which is currently a global crisis and this year's Green Ghana Day with a target of 20 million tree seedlings and a theme 'Mobilizing for a Greener Future' will go a long way to reduce the problem.
