Green Ghana: Azumah Nelson, Ama K. Abebrese join Geodrill to plant trees

Ghana’s former boxer, Azumah Nelson and actress Ama K. Abebrese joined Geodrill, a leading exploration drilling company, to plant trees as part of the government’s Green Ghana Project.
The project is aimed at planting five million trees to restore Ghana’s depleted forest.
Azumah Nelson emphasized that the Green Ghana Project is a laudable initiative that needs to be supported by all Ghanaians.
He believes human existence hinges directly on the survival of trees. Thus, without the oxygen produced by trees, we cannot survive as human beings.
He was hopeful that the Green Ghana initiative would help restore the environment for a better life for all if embraced by every Ghanaian.
The tree planting exercise took place at the Children of the Light education centre in Aburi on Tuesday, 8th June 2021.
Mr Dave Harper,  CEO of Geodrill, emphasized the company’s maximum support for the Green Ghana Project.
Geodrill is committed to being socially responsible, particularly within the communities in which it operates and with those in most need of support.
“Management believes that this core value embraced by the Geodrill’s corporate culture benefits not only our surrounding communities and their environment as a whole but the Company and its employees as well.”
Therefore, Mr Harper said, “it is necessary to rally behind Ghana Government’s Green Ghana initiative to ensure we win the fight together. It is very important that the environment is protected to mitigate the climate change that the world is experiencing.”
Ama K. Abebrese, a child safety icon and an accomplished television presenter with over two decades of experience, also enjoyed participating in the tree planting exercise with the children.
She discussed the importance and the need to care for the environment and also conserve nature.
A mixture of dwarf coconut, mango, citrus, and sour apple trees were successfully planted and maintained with the support of Geodrill at the Children on the Light Centre.
Geodrill has been a long-standing patron of the centre.
Founded by Jeanette Brown Opoku, Children of the Light has since 2005 been operating as a registered charitable organisation in Ghana, with a passion for helping further children’s education holistically.

 

Environmental education is strongly emphasised at the centre. 
The organisation runs year-round educational programmes for children aged 4 to 16 years in one-on-one and small-group learning settings.
In addition, children also enjoy numerous special programmes, including language arts, performing and fine arts, social studies, mathematics, science, and sporting activities.
