This is an annual event aimed at being the biggest, and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action. To commemorate the day, the Foundation works together with schools in the areas we operate in Zimbabwe, Botswana & Zambia.
The day starts with speeches about conservation and the environment, followed by either tree-planting activities or a clean-up campaign across local community centres; clinics, police stations, commercial shopping areas and along national railways & road before the schools compete for prizes with presentations in three categories: Drama/Song, Banner and Poetry.
Sports is a highly valued past time and most of the events also involve sports where both school and adult teams from the community compete. The schools set up tuck shops and cake sales of which proceeds go to the school. Refreshments will be provided, and transportation will be given to residents of the communities up to 15-kilometers away.
