Vision City Kigali, a green city housing project, has partnered with Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) to support "Rwanda's Little Hands Go Green," campaign across the country.
The new environment conservation campaign is designed to educate children to take part in mass tree planting exercise in Kigali and beyond.
It is the first time the project is being undertaken in Kigali.
Dubbed "Rwanda's Little Hands Go Green," the initiative, an offshoot of 'Uganda's Little Hands Go Green' campaign, was on Saturday embraced by Vision City housing estate and more than 500 school children, who planted at least 300 horticultural trees around the city.
The initiative, according to Liliane Mupende, the chief executive of Ultimate Developers Ltd (UDL), the developer of Vision City, seeks to put children at the forefront of tree-planting and climate change efforts to help conserve the environment.
