The YANA team is already on the ground, getting ready to launch the first phase of the Tree of Life Project in Ngong, North Cameroon in partnership with Earth Rising Foundation.
This project targets training 500 environmental ambassadors, constructing a solar-powered borehole to provide potable water and planting 5000 trees within 5 years (2022-2027) in these communities.
This phase comprises two stages.
- Contact and Sensitisation
Firstly, the YANA team is to contact the traditional rulers, heads of educational institutions, youth and women leaders and Administrative authorities of the Ngong, Djola and Djefatou communities to sensitize them on the scope of the project.
