Greenpop TestimonialMy name is Ireen Ng`andu, I am a climate change ambassador under UNICEF’s programme ‘Unite 4 Climate Zambia’. I completed my studies last year and currently working as a volunteer with the Zambian NGO ‘Greenpop’ based here in Livingstone.
In the few weeks I have been with them we have been monitoring sites were trees had previously been planted two years ago, running eco-workshops at schools, facilitating tree planting events and lots, lots more! I have learned a lot in these few weeks I have worked with Greenpop, for example, I discovered lots of information about new trees, their uses, and especially their medicinal value which is very useful.
Working with Greenpop has been an experience of a life time for me because I have also been to places I have never visited before or even imagined I would go to! Greenpop does not just plant trees, but it plants trees with great fun and excitement (with a pop!) That is what everyone needs.
This year’s “Trees for Zambia 2014” project promises to be great fun. It will be a three week long eco-festival which begins on the 15th June will run up to the 7th July. This an event I wouldn’t miss for the world!
I would like to thank Greenpop for the opportunity to work with them and also thank Greenpop representatives Patrick and Uncle Ben for their support during my stay. Thanks to my fellow volunteers; Emmanuel, Jamie, Sebastian and Solomon for their cooperation and coordination. Of course not forgetting my parents Grace and Muhamubi Simalonga for allowing me the time to be with Green pop.
