Mutanda primary school plants trees with a special dedication
In November 2022, Ven. Robina Courtin and Tenzin Ösel Hita each did a public talk, as part of the Global Tree Initiative’s fundraiser program.
The talks required a lot of planning and arrangements, including putting together a team of translators and translator assistants. As a gift to the translator assistants, the Global Tree Initiative offered to have trees planted and dedicated in their name.
With the help of Jussa, our Zimbabwean coordinator, a tree was planted and dedicated to each of the translator assistants! The trees were planted by pupils of the Mutanda Primary school, as part of the #CatchThemYoung campaign of Manica Youth Assembly (MAYA).
A very big thank you to the translator assistants – Anastasia, Claire Narcisse, Francesco Morgese, Katy Peláez, Marine Cecilia, Sabrina Facco, and Ven. Namdro – for helping us with these events!
And, thank you to Jussa and MAYA for helping us to offer these gifts to the translator assistants.
If you would like to have a tree planted and dedicated to a special person or occasion, have a look at our partner in Zimbabwe,s website, MAYA’s website.
