Rotary Club, Reggae Republic partner on tree planting in Lagos
As part of efforts to address the challenges of desertification and climate change, the Rotary Club of Lekki Phase 1 in partnership with a socio-humanitarian group, Reggae Republic and Greensprings Anthos House School, Jakande Lekki, has embarked on tree planting campaign in Lagos State.
Tagged: ‘One Million Reggae Tree Campaign Initiative’, the campaign, which took place at Greensprings Anthos House School, saw the promoters plant many trees at the school premises, which provided a safe, secure and well-supported learning environment for children with a variety of needs such as autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, GDD and encephalopathy.
Evelyn Osagie, a journalist, spiced the event up with a poetic performance on the environment amid a reggae dance party.
The President of Rotary Club of Lekki Phase 1, Mrs. Yetunde Dimowo, said the club was excited about the partnership because “Rotary is all about service to humanity.”
She said the club shared Reggae Republic’s vision and ideals of impacting positively on humanity, stressing that “this partnership is well-made and couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Project Coordinator of Reggae Republic, Washington Uba, said the group was happy with the partnership because of its philosophy of “catching them young.”
