Your HeroTREEs report!

APOPO is delighted to be updating you not just regarding the last quarter, but also regarding our success during the GlobalGiving Climate Action campaign, which ran just after the last update went out. With your incredible support, our HeroTREEs project came in at number seven in the leaderboard and raised just over $5,000! Thank you.

In terms of action, APOPO's HeroTREEs project has enabled the training of the following farmers by village (a total of 92 farmers received training!):

  • 20 farmers at Ruvuma
  • 24 Farmers at Mgambazi
  • 20 farmers at Tulo
  • 18 farmers at Choma
  • 10 farmers at Kisosa


Training farmers is a key aspect of our HeroTREEs mission, as without adequate monitoring and maintenance of planted trees, nursery management or seedling transplantation, the trees planted cannot thrive.   

In terms of the trees planted in the last quarter, at least five species of trees were planted, with over 1,000 trees successfully going into the ground and now thriving!

Our plan for the next three months is to:

  • Expand our nurseries and enhance biodiversity by planting more native seeds /seedlings as well as a small number of exotic tree species
  • Take GPS measurements of farmers' plots with established trees, for increased monitoring
  • Carry out follow up visits to the farmers, ensuring we have equipped them with everything they need for project success
  • Prepare for tree-planting activities when the short rains begin (Sept-Oct)


Your support means more than planting trees and protecting the planet (which is pretty important we know!), your support also means that farmers learn how to better manage the land leading to sustainable change. Your support helps improve water quality for neighbouring villages and cities in Tanzania and indeed, your support protects the endemic species living in this ecologically important part of the world by protecting the habitats in which they thrive.

Thank you.

With best wishes,

Emma
