Karpowership Ghana has planted 3000 trees at the Chipa forest reserve near Shai Hills and the Achimota Basic school in commemoration of Green Ghana Day.

The trees at the Achimota Basic School were planted together with the students.

Karpowership Ghana together with the Forestry Commission took time to educate the students about the essence of trees and the need to nurture and protect our green economy.

This event underscores Karpowership Ghana’s commitment to environmental sustainability and teaching the next generation about the importance of a green economy.

Ms. Amarquaye passionately encouraged the students to become advocates for trees and the environment.

“I urge you all to become friends of trees, to plant them, care for them, and protect them because if the last tree dies, the last person dies,” she said, inspiring the young minds to take active roles in environmental conservation.

Ms. Ernestina Anie, Public Relations Manager at the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission rallied support saying, “The Forestry Commission as part of our functions, educates and creates awareness on the protection and conservation of forests and the wildlife resources.

"We ask the support of Ghanaians to assist us as an institution in protecting and conserving these natural resources because we cannot protect them alone.”


Participants filled with excitement commended Karpowership Ghana and the forestry commission for this initiative.

Emmanuel Okyere Shared his experience saying, “I have learnt how and why I should plant trees, nurture them to grow and I also planted a tree today.

“It’s been a very educative program, to me it has rekindled my love to be part of the conversation and actions that will lead to Ghana preserving our green economy.

"Thank you very much Karpowership Ghana and the Forestry Commission,” Sophia Ayeih, Vice President of the Wildlife Club – Achimota Basic School.


In addition to the activities at Achimota Basic School, Karpowership Ghana made donations to the Wildlife Club to support their activities, further solidifying their commitment to nurturing the next generation of environmental stewards.

This event highlights the ongoing efforts of Karpowership Ghana to promote environmental awareness and action among young people, ensuring a greener and more sustainable future for Ghana.
