by Community Forests International on May 22, 2013

On May 22, at 11:32 East Africa Time, villagers from the island of Pemba watched as a young boy took Community Forests International past the million tree milestone. Our communities have worked hard over the years, spending countless hours working to grow and plant trees for the betterment of future generations. It is with great pride that we make this announcement today for our journey has not been easy. We can now say with assurance that Community Forests International, Community Forests Pemba and our community partners are here to stay. The future of our planet depends on the hard work of our earth's rural communities and we thank the people that have worked to make this happen. We thank you Pembans for your commitment to making our world a better place. In true CFI style we celebrated the event by planting another 1000 trees. We cannot thank our supporters and our communities enough. Thanks to those of you that have believed in us along the way. This success is ours to share.
