It is important to underline the need to undo the damage that insurgency has done to the ecosystem. According to MUAZU ABARI, one of these is planting trees.
Planting trees is now recognized as being crucial to the socioeconomic advancement and survival of humanity.
In other words, trees are crucial to both human existence and the ecosystem. Governments all over the world continue to release intentional policies and action plans that will result in the mitigation of climatic change in their nations in light of this reality.
Despite all efforts to address the issues of climate change and global warming at all levels, these issues continue to pose a major threat to human life and the sustainability of the environment.
A non-governmental group in the state of Adamawa decided to support the government's efforts to combat climate change in light of this reality.
The charity, which was founded in 2000 to help the average person through humanitarian interventions, decided to implement a free yearly tree-planting effort to combat desertification in Adamawa state.
The Planting of Trees campaign
In 2001, the maiden edition of the I.Y. Kwache yearly tree planting campaign got underway, and 10,000 trees of varying economic importance were distributed. Mahogany, the shea butter tree, the black plum, and the olive tree are a few examples. The program's second iteration, which took place in 2002, followed it. This time around, 10,000 trees of various varieties were distributed.
The tree-planting campaign's 2023 iteration is exceptional and remarkable in every way. Stakeholders, decision-makers, traditional leaders, and personalities from within and outside the state attended the Michika ceremony to witness this historic occasion.
Sustaining the environment
Speaking is Barrister, chairman of the foundation's board of trustees. Iliya Yame Kwache stated that their goal in starting an annual mass tree planting initiative is to revitalize the neighborhood and fulfill their share of the responsibility for maintaining the environment.
"Ignoring the issue of combating climate change and global warming is not an option. We boldly assert that a tree is essential to life—even water depends on them.”
Through yearly mass tree planting, the I.Y. Kwache Foundation is happy to help the globe reduce and eventually end global warming, he emphasized.
He asserts that the foundation's guiding principle is justice, peace, and development and that widespread tree planting will unquestionably bring these values to local communities. He also notes that the United Nations' actions for a healthy planet are centered on tree planting, something the foundation will never take for granted.
He urged all levels of government and other stakeholders to take climate change and global warming seriously and to recommit themselves to the battle against it because of its detrimental impacts on human survival and community existence.
"The government has the largest role to play in preventing climate change; as a result, we issued a challenge to the government during the second iteration of our tree-planting program and offered an actual, workable solution. We continue to remind the various branches of government that these recommendations are feasible.”
Kwache urged the federal government to immediately make planting trees a requirement for civil servant promotions across the nation, and he suggested that all corps members plant trees as part of their service year.
He urged that the federal government should establish a program to encourage tree planting among the military, police, paramilitary forces, and religious bodies.
Beneficiaries commended work
The majority of participants and recipients of the free seedling distributions praised the foundation for consistently empathizing with the hardship of the neighborhood through its numerous intervention projects.
A recipient, Emmanuel Zirra, spoke on the sidelines of the occasion and stated, "We in northern Adamawa, particularly Michika and Madagali axis, are obliged to the founder of this organization for his unusual love, patriotism, and commitment to the wellbeing of our people. He persisted in giving up his hard-earned assets for the benefit of our advancement. The sky is the limit if other wealthy members of our society imitate him. He has done so much for our communities, and we cannot express our gratitude to him enough.”
Another beneficiary identified as Kwanye Goji claimed that the foundation's tree-planting campaign, which was started three years ago, has helped people become more aware of the risks associated with tree-cutting as well as the need to jealously protect their environment from climate change.
Joseph Tumba, another beneficiary, called on other organizations to follow the foundation's example of giving back to society, saying that the foundation has paid its dues not only in the areas of tree planting and cultural rebirth, but also in the areas of community services such as the digging of boreholes, educational support, medical interventions, and skill acquisition, among other things.
