Give Bangladesh takes initiative to protect coastal areas
Give Bangladesh Foundation (GBF) took the initiative to plant 3,000 trees in Shyamnagar upazila of Satkhira, a salinity-affected coastal area on Friday.
Across 35 different spots, which were mostly public institutions, diverse varieties of salinity-endured trees including kadbel, amloki, debdaru, lomb, mahogany, rongon, mango, alokananda, neem, sofeda, and guava were planted under the initiative "Project Oxygen 3.0", according to a press release.
LEDARS, a local NGO of Satkhira was the implementation partner of the event.
The event was supported by the Engineer Abul Kalam Trust and KKF.
Students from Manarat International School and Hermann Gmeiner School and College were involved in the awareness campaign.
The primary objective of "Project Oxygen" is to reforest the vulnerable coastal region, fortify it against future natural disasters, and to empower underprivileged locals while safeguarding the environment.
