The Synod’s Moderator Reverend John Gondwe was speaking when BEAM Trust donated tree seedlings to Katawa CCAP Primary School.
He then commended BEAM for its commitment in replacing the depleted forests in the country.
“We launched the Synod Tree Planting Week a couple of days and the development will help our children participate and value the importance of growing trees.” Said Gondwe.
Commenting on the call by Head of State towards a consorted effort in making this year tree planting exercise a success Gondwe said the development is bearing fruits.
“This is in complementing the Head of State His Excellency Professor Peter Mtharika’s tireless efforts in making Malawi green,” He Said.
Presenting the donation to Katawa CCAP Primary School in the Mzuzu City BEAM Northern Region Chairperson Caroline Mfune said the exercise is aimed at protecting all schools from storms apart from making the country greener.
“One of our pillars is working with schools through building schools aimed at minimizing the distances covered by girls to access education which is inline with BEAM’s patron the First Lady Professor Gertrude Mtharika’s wish that schools be protected,” said Mfune.
BEAM Trust is expected to make a similar donation to over 25 schools in Mzuzu City.
