Green Ghana Project: Black Stars plant trees in Cape Coast
The senior national football team, the Black Stars, has joined a section of Ghanaians today, June 11, to plant trees as part of the Green Ghana Project initiative.
The team collaborated with the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and the Forestry Commission to plant trees to honour the country’s maiden Green Ghana Day.
The project is a government initiative aimed at planting over five million trees in the bid to protect the country’s forest cover and the environment at large,
The senior national soccer team is currently in camp at Cape Coast ahead of an international friendly against neighbouring Ivory Coast.
The team returned on Tuesday from Morocco where they lost 1-0 to the Atlas Lions in the first of two friendlies aimed at preparing them ahead of the World Cup qualifiers to commence in September.
Ghana will host The Elephants of Ivory Coast on Saturday, June 12, at the Cape Coast Stadium and are hoping to record their first win in four games.
