Photographer aims to make a difference

Posted on 5 November 2013

Christopher Scott, one of Zambezi Traveller’s talented photographers is making a difference in Zimbabwe’s rural areas.

As part of my company's corporate social responsibility we are helping the Bright Tomorrow's Trust Zimbabwe, a local NGO that deals with orphans and vulnerable families in Mhondoro province and Mutoko, see more info here. As part of their ideal to educate and develop each household to be as self sufficient as possible we have been planting fruit and indigenous shade trees in the most vulnerable houses in the 2 areas as well as schools.

The fruit trees will in future be an important food staple for the families and we are educating the children in the schools about the importance of planting trees. We cant keep up with the demand and so are appealing to members of the public and corporates to help us by donating trees. We are after avocado and orange trees for the houses and schools as well as indigenous shade trees such as Natal mahogany, Kenyan croton and silver terminalia. The trees are all available at the Forestry Commission and range from $6-7 each for the fruit and around $3 for the indigenous. We would appreciate any help people are willing to offer, even 1 tree will make a difference!

You can see pictures of some of our planting sessions here and here.
