One Million Trees

I often hear that our planet is doomed. Our hearts are lacking the hope as the plastic bag counter continued to tick. We don't have the money, yet have all the technology, to clean up our landfills, and I say it is time to bring back that hope, challenge your community and make an impact for the next generation.

That is the mindset of Gashaw Tahir.

The Ethiopian man who fought deforestation by planting one million trees.

Change in Ethiopia is synonymous with man-made erosion. He started by going to city council and asking for 2 acres of land. They handed it over to him with no constraints and here is his story as he transformed his birth country. Don't tell me there is no hope in Haiti, Chile, and Iceland (as of late) because there is certainly hope on this planet.
