The Greening Kuwadzana Project, a movement of re-greening, fighting for environmental justice and increasing access to green spaces for people living in high density suburbs, has attracted the attention of tertiary colleges with Chinhoyi University of Technology Department of Ecology and Environmental Sciences touring the project on a learning exercise, recently.

The project has since planted and maintaining over 4,000 trees in Kuwadzana with a target of planting at least 5,000 trees by 2025.

One of the students, Prince Kufa, said the tour offered insights on other environmental areas which they can venture into after school.

“The tour helped me in many ways. As a student of Environmental Science and Technology I was not aware that our programme is broad and doesn’t confine us to becoming only occupational and health service officers. I have learnt that I can actually start my own project and make an impact,” said Kufa.

One of the lecturers Varaidzo Mapara said such tours were important as they expose students to practical experiences.

“We thought it is good for the students to see what we teach them physically and experience it as well as ask questions from real or tangible experiences,” said Mapara.

Climate change has become a global challenge that requires collective action
and effort to curb it. Both the authorities and citizens have an important role to play.

The Greening Kuwadzana Project has made an impact in environmental conservation creating a culture of environmental responsibility.

“It is a dream come true because the only way to safeguard the legacy is to inspire as many young people as possible. My main objective is to inspire young people to take responsibility of their communities and fulfil their duty as residents,” said Tafadzwa Gwini, Founder of Greening Kuwadzana Project.

Gwini said the project has spread to other high density suburbs such as Chitungwiza with the target being to go national.
