The MTN Ghana Foundation, supported by global telecommunications company MTN, is planting 9,000 tree seedlings in Ghana as part of its 21 Days of Y'ello Care programme, from 1-25 June.
The 9,000 tree seedlings represent the nine million MTN subscribers in the country. 3,000 trees are to be planted in the greater Accra area, including Burma Camp and along the beaches, with the rest of the trees being planted in Kumasi, Takoradi and Atimpoku. The theme of the three-week campaign is Our Environment, Our Future, and comes after the United Nations dedicated 2011 as the International Year of the Forest.
Over 2,000 MTN staff volunteers in Ghana are taking part in tree-planting projects as well as other environmental schemes such as river and beach clean-ups, in collaboration with the country
