Located in Chake Chake District, the Kilindi School is the most recent addition to the planting project. Several teachers in the school planted the area surrounding the school over 20 years ago, and now wish to continue what they started by building the capacity to grow their own native and indigenous trees on-site.
Mbarouk Mussa Omar of Community Forests Pemba and Jeff Schnurr of Community Forests International visited Kilindi school in late October of 2009 and decided to add the school to the project. Teachers and students had already constructed a nursery and were waiting for technical advice in collecting seeds and preparing the growing medium. Community Forests Pemba taught teachers and students how to collect seeds from the trees planted on school grounds over two decades ago and delivered seedling containers in order to begin the propagation process.
In the future Community Forests Pemba hopes to include Kilindi School in their education programming in order to foster the relationships between, youth, trees and a healthy environment for the whole community.
Kilindi in located in Chake Chake District and has a population of 2,784 (1,398 male and 1,350 female).
