After successfully planting trees at Gisunzu Primary School, close to Gishwati Forest, last week CITW Rwanda concentrated its reforestation focus on Bisate Primary and Secondary schools.
At the primary school, teachers and learners from our CITW Eco-Club planted a total of 65 trees, while at the secondary school students from the CITW YES Club (who are all sponsored with a scholarship through kind donations from our guests), planted a total of 86 trees.
Great progress for the surroundings of both schools!
All the saplings planted are indigenous to the area and were donated by the Bisate Lodge nursery. They include Hagenia, Dombeya, Neoboutonia, Hypericum and Lobelia, which grow well in this area as they are the species originally found in the volcanic soil around Bisate village.
