VUKO distributes trees to rescue the environment

MOUTSE – VUKO has handed over trees to the National Professional Teacher’s Organization of South Africa (NAPTOSA) to distribute at schools, churches and pre-schools in Moutse to create awareness on the importance of tree planting in communities.

The organization, which focuses on protecting languages and culture, handed over 50 trees to the institutions that had fence around them and access to water.

Balwaphi Masanabo, VUKO National Chairperson, said they donated the trees to the institutions to make communities aware of the crucial role they played in the environment.

Masanabo said three played a pivotal role in protecting the ozone, were a critical source of oxygen and the removal of carbon dioxide.

“We also wanted to make communities aware of some trees that are not environmentally friendly, such as pine trees and Eucalyptus, Bouchom, trees as they use 400 litres of water per day. That is the reason rivers and boreholes loose water fast in our communities,” informed Masanabo.

Masanabo said the distribution of the trees was ongoing as they hoped to reach out to more other institutions in various communities.
