Students clean up, plant trees

MASERU — Six schools in Maseru took part in a tree planting and cleaning campaign at Lesotho High School last Friday.

The campaign was organised by the Geography and Environment Movement (GEM) in conjunction with Lesotho Sun Hotel. The students planted trees and flowers at the school.

The chairperson of the movement, ‘Malintle Kheleli, said the purpose of the campaign was to raise awareness among students on issues of global warming.

“We would like to instil a change of mindset that our environment has to be well maintained for the sustainability of future generations,” Kheleli said.

“By implementing this project we are answering a call by the government to take care of our environment and the reduce pollution.”

Lesotho Sun resident manager, Lyn Callaway, said her company was involved with initiatives of GEM because they feel it ideal to involve youth for environment protection as early as possible.
