Trees For Health Project: Planting Trees With A Purpose
When on their regular school medical camps in across the region, AAR Medical teams identified that majority of the children requiring medical intervention were suffering from anaemia and malnourishment, typical consequences of severe parasitical infestation. AAR took up the challenge to set up a programme that would free them from this impediment, provide a healthier school environment as well as prevent environmental degradation that was being caused by wanton cutting of trees to cater for the schools’ firewood needs. Thus in 2010 the AAR Beckmann Trust’s ‘Trees for Health’ programme was born.
The ‘Trees for Health’ programme combines the health of the environment with children’s health, and directly involves schools, communities, teachers and children in the tree- planting and de-worming process, from hole preparation to care and management of the tree, thus building an environmentally- conscious generation.
Planting trees on school grounds make schools independent for their ever growing energy needs. At the same time school become conscious about creating a healthy environment and about how this benefits a revival of a healthier ecosystem which impacts on children’s health.
Reducing the impact of worm infestation; Worms, especially hookworm infestation, is a life-threatening neglected disease and a leading cause of maternal and child morbidity in developing countries. Children often suffer the most from poor health and malnutrition) and are particularly susceptible to the adverse effects of worm infestation and usually manifests itself through intellectual, cognitive and growth retardation. Lack of food, malnutrition and poor hygiene compromise immunity and create a vicious cycle of poverty. Regular de-worming contributes to good health and nutrition for school-age children, which in turn leads to increased enrolment and attendance, reduced class repetition, and increased educational attainment.
‘Prevention Is Better Than Cure’- Impacting Postively On The Community
Since the Trees for Health project began, over 150 schools across the region have come on board, 50,000 children have been regularly de-wormed and over 30,000 trees have been planted on school grounds alone. School children take direct responsibility for preparing the tree holes, planting the seedlings and caring for them until they mature. Those schools are now producing their own source of energy and invest saved firewood money in improving the health and therefore academic performance of their students. All this has a wider ripple positive effect on the communities where the schools are situated.
