The Otara Foundation co-sponsored the Tree Boot Fundraiser Campaign organized by the students of SLIIT Business Faculty in partnership with Reforest SL in September .
The objective of the campaign focused on raising awareness among Sri Lankan citizens about the consequences of deforestation and the importance of reforestation. The project intends to initiate reforestation and forest enrichment campaigns in deforested areas and bare land.
Most recently, around 2000 saplings were planted in Mamunugama, an area in Kurunegala that hasn’t seen proper rainfall in over 5 years, together with the community and the Sri Lankan Army.
As citizens, it is our responsibility to create awareness on deforestation and protect the environment of our beautiful country.
