An awareness creation and tree planting will be carried out in Kwande LGA ( Ajio community ) of Benue State by organizing a community rally and a community discussion will be hold at the process in which the community, Government, Business, civil society and the youth will be educated on the causes and effects of climate change and will be enlightened on environmental dangers associated with traditional cutting of tree for coal, bush burning and other human activities that also affects the climate. An alternative approaches in getting coal will be the use of a briquetting machine. Public address system, banner and flyers and a streaming video to pass/sprayed information.
Tree planting activities will be done in the community. Community members will actively participate in the exercise and be encouraged to nurture the trees for posterity. Fifty tree seedlings (twenty five coconut seedlings and twenty five palm tree seedlings) will be distributed and planted. There be a light refreshment for one hundred persons afterward.
For the project to be carried out successfully we shall be working with community gate keepers and the ministry of Agriculture to secure a land space in a community school where the initial planting will be done and they will assist with the long-term maintenance by watering the plants during the dry season and clearing the vegetation. The community gate keepers, Ministry of Agriculture, civil society, and the youth leader will be monitoring the growth process of the trees.
