Rotary Club and Reggae Republic Collaborate to Plant Trees in Lagos
To combat desertification and climate change, the Rotary Club of Lekki Phase 1 has launched a tree-planting programme in Lagos State in collaboration with the socio-humanitarian organisation Reggae Republic and Greensprings Anthos House School, Jakande Lekki.
The campaign, called the 'One Million Reggae Tree Campaign Initiative’, which took place at Greensprings Anthos House School, saw the planting of numerous trees on the school campus, which provided a safe, secure, and well-supported learning environment for children with a variety of needs, including autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, GDD, and encephalopathy.
Journalist Evelyn Osagie invigorated the evening with a poetry performance about the environment during a reggae dance party.
Mrs. Yetunde Dimowo, president of the Rotary Club of Lekki Phase 1, stated that the club was enthusiastic about the relationship since "Rotary is all about serving humanity."
She stated that the club shared Reggae Republic's goal and ideals of positively benefiting humanity, emphasising that "this alliance could not have been forged at a better time."
Washington Uba, the project coordinator for Reggae Republic, stated that the group was pleased with the relationship because of its attitude of "catching them young."
