Our planting of 3,000 Pine oocarpa at Mwomboshi Community in Chisamba District has successfully germinated at 95%. Another 2,000 will be planted in a few weeks now that the rains have settled in. The community had to water the seedlings by hand until just a few weeks ago, due to erratic rain patterns. These pine seedlings will be planted out in Mwomboshi Forest Reserve which is severely being deforested. African Community Forest is hoping to educate the community to leave the reserve alone. The project is overseen by African Community Project`s volunteer in Chisamba, Fredrick Nalili. Praises go to Fredrick and the community for such commitment.

Today I got this photo from Innocent Kalinda, African Community Project’s Outreach Coordinator in Mazabuka, Zambia. It is one of the handicapped children who call Chibolya Community School home. This week 8 kids and their house mother went from sleeping on the floor sharing 3 mattresses to their own beds. Thanks to World Forgotten Children’s Foundation for their generous donation to help African Community Project make this happen.
