Sarah Massaquoi – Trees For Prosperity

Date grant awarded: July 1, 2019

Trees For Prosperity aims to help bring back the tree cover to the Bo, Sierra Leone community, which will serve as windbreakers for homes, many of which were destroyed during the past storm due to heavy winds. According to the United Nation Environment report, we have 12-years to bring in solutions to limit global warming. One way to do this is to plant more trees that absorb the carbon dioxide emitted in the air. Moreover, it has been confirmed by environmental researchers that if 1 trillion trees are planted globally, that the CO2 levels can be offset by a decade.
