Mkwichi Secondary School is one of the model schools when it comes to preservation and caring of trees as it has over the years been transformed through efforts in retaining tree survival rates.

BEAM’s National Coordinator Mr Paul Nyasulu expressed gratitude to be present at the tree planting ceremony. He reminded the gathering that it is at the heart of the BEAM’s founder Prof. Gertrude Mutharika to see to it that the environment is restored and cared for.

“We are the ones responsible to ensure that our surrounding is looking neat and nature is cared for. Beautify Malawi Trust is not just a name. We want our roads, markets, schools and all facilities to look beautiful. I want to encourage all of us to keep on taking care of Mother Nature,” said Nyasulu.
