Duluti Green Foundation Trust. Environmental Conservation Program
- Environmental Conservation Program.
Tanzania, as well as many other countries in the world, faces different challenges due to climate change and the growth of population. Former forests (which were a fertile living space for several species of animals and reptiles) got cut down to create more space for farming purposes and to feed the community.
Moreover, you can see changes of the environment all around the country. Some specific trees do not get enough rain during the year anymore and eventually die. Trees, forests, and a healthy environment are necessary for every community and the whole humanity to produce fresh air, give shade and an appropriate living space to humans and animals. That’s why Gladness Pallangyo founded the Duluti Green Foundation in 2005. She wanted to share her passion for environmental conservation with the community and visitors. Her aim is to educate the society and herself continuously to reach more sustainability within her work and more awareness of the needs of the environment to create a greener place to live in. Her motto is: “Conserve your Environment to Conserve You! “ At Duluti Green Foundation Trust Environmental Conservation Program, visitors can see the Arusha environment on the slopes of Mount Meru. We are planting trees in different zones as Green bell zone and sem-desert zone our aims is to make Our country Tanzania green and World and Better place to lives for everyone.
They learn about the peculiarities of this area and the methods farmers use to protect the environment. At the end project, every single volunteer /visitor gets a certificate of tree for Africa.
