JOHANNESBURG – September 01, 2017 - In September, Konica Minolta South Africa (KMSA), a division of Bidvest Office (Pty) Ltd., and Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA), committed to plant 1810 trees in three different provinces across South Africa. Trees will be planted at schools, clinics and community centres in Johannesburg, Newcastle and Polokwane. Johannesburg will see the planting of 900 trees - both Newcastle and Polokwane have been allocated 455 trees each, to be planted at identified beneficiaries.
JOHANNESBURG - September 01 2017 - The 1st of September, Arbor Day, will see Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) and their partners planting trees at five schools across four provinces in South Africa. This is the beginning of a month of intensive planting where at least 14,137 trees will be planted across the country. We encouraged all individuals, organisations and businesses to “Plant a Legacy” with us this Arbor month - and they have stepped up to the challenge. Despite these commitments we have almost 2000 schools on our national database waiting to receive trees, and are encouraging those who have not yet made a donation, to do so.
Fundraising for communities and the environment using integrated Social Media Platform
24 August 2017 - On 01 September 2017, as part of their Arbor Month campaign, Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) will be launching a first-of-its-kind social media platform to raise money for the environment and communities in South Africa.
Eventually we hope to work with these community groups to start supplying their feeding schemes with fresh and nutritious vegetables.
