Amongst other activities, the Bois d’Ecole project initiates tree planting, the creation of gardens, recycling etc. in elementary schools, with children, so they learn from an early age. Katie and Ekuwa, interning at the Ministry of Environment, has invited their fellow students to join them in one of the site of the project.
