Beautify Malawi (BEAM) trust on Wednesday February 19th joined students and staff of Bwaila Secondary School in the planting of 1000 trees at the school’s campus.
Speaking before the exercise, BEAM National coordinator, Mr Paul Nyasulu urged the students and staff of Bwaila Secondary School to take care of the trees so that they survive and grow.
“Let’s take care of our environment. Let’s take care of our homes and surroundings. Let’s take care of our bodies and everything around us. That’s what the First Lady desires for you,” emphasised Mr Nyasulu.
The First Lady Professor Gertrude Mutharika, through beam, also donated two waste bins to Bwaila Secondary School to help contribute towards better hygiene management.
Speaking on behalf of the school, the Headmistress of Bwaila Secondary School Mrs Nungu, appreciated the gesture that the First Lady has shown through Beautify Malawi Trust.
“Care and conservation of nature, and hygiene values must be entrenched in the next generation from a tender age. Working with BEAM in these areas will greatly support the efforts that we do as a school,” said Nungu.
BEAM has in recent months taken their nature conservation drive to public institutions after years of working with private schools and other organizations.
