Working together, we can reach amazing goals. When I challenged Lions to plant one million trees this year, I believed we could achieve it together. In India, I saw that anything is possible when you believe. There, Lions worked with other organizations, including the government, schools and a police academy, to plant a reported 3.4 million trees.
Lions also partnered with local youth to help nurture these young trees for a year, which is important for growing the children’s volunteering spirit as well as the trees. Through this project, Lions have taught countless young people in southern India about ecology and how they can make a difference using their two hands.
I believe that this is just one example of how Lions are improving their communities by planting trees.
