The Old Mutual Foundation on Monday launched the Little Green Ambassadors project, aimed at empowering the younger generation to become heroes for the planet and champions of environmental sustainability.
The foundation will be sponsoring 56 trees to two primary schools per region.
“Each school will be provided with two trees and the essentials needed for them to nurture and take care of their trees for a three-month period,” said Old Mutual spokesperson Mufaro Nesongano.
At the end of three months, an evaluation will be done by a panel of judges to see which school was able to best take care of their trees.
Prizes up for grabs are First place of N$20 000, second place of N$15 000, third place of N$10 000, fourth place of N$5 000 and fifth place of N$3 000.
To take part, primary schools and learners should complete an online form along with a 30-second video, shared via +264 81 661 0858 to showcase their commitment to the environment by 22 September 2023.
“By doing so, participants get a chance to win two Old Mutual Foundation trees for their school and elect a Little Green ambassador who will lead the way in nurturing the trees and raising awareness about environmental issues in their school and community,” he shared.
