September 15, (NaijaOnPoint Media) – The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) has launched a new project designed to improve air and health quality of children in 250 public schools.
This is in keeping with its mandate to build a society prospering and living in harmony with nature.
The NCF project will be conducted in partnership with Global Giving, a globally accredited crowdfunding platform, to raise $40,000 to plant 250,000 trees in public schools across Nigeria within the next one year. The funds will be received and managed by Global Giving.
The donations will be considered people’s contribution to building a better and healthier society.
The crowdfunding acceleration exercise is expected to run online from Monday, September 13 to Thursday, September 30, 2021, and will be open to the general public.
For over four decades, NCF has consistently implemented programmes that help restore and conserve the environment, support community livelihood, protect species, and provide environmental education for teeming students and youths across the country.
In the recent times, NCF has been visiting schools across the nation to plant trees, create gardens and teach the teachers and pupils on upcycling activities. This is in addition to various conservation clubs established in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions.
