news from (and about) the trees

Two stories from Africa this week:  WANGARI PLANTS OVER 30 MILLION TREES ACROSS AFRICA – The late Margaret Wangari Maathai was the first African woman to receive the Nobel peace prize for her work as a campaigner for human rights, and founded the Green Belt Movement in Kenya and called on people to support it by planting trees.

also: RIPPLE Africa is an international nonprofit organization working in Malawi, Africa, since 2003, with a focus on education, healthcare and the environment. Read about their forest conservation project, aiming to preserve the forested hills of the Nkhata Bay District of Malawi (an area of 4,000sq.km) before they are lost forever.
