MP for Sissala East and Deputy Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Hon. Amidu Issahaku Chinnia has launched the Green Environment Clubs among Basic Schools in the Municipality.
This comes after the Ministry of Land, Water, and Natural Resources introduced the Green Ghana initiative which seeks to mobilize Ghanaians and other stakeholders in a bid to preserve the environment and depleted forest reserves.
According to Hon. Chinnia, the purpose of bringing the initiative to basic schools is to groom the pupils on how to preserve the environment.
This he said will mitigate the damning effects of climate change, especially on the livelihood of the majority of the population whose occupation is derived from the environment.
The event took place at Kuroboi a farming community in the Sissala East Municipality. According to the Mp, Green Environment Clubs will be formed in all basic schools and both economic and forested trees such as mangoes, cashew, casha, Milana and many more will be supplied for planting.
Hon. Amidu Chinnia pledged to institute a scheme to reward well-performing clubs and schools at large.
