Green School project series in Nigeria and Senegal convinces the jury
The news channel ntv, the German Institute for Service Quality and the DUP UNTERNEHMER magazine award prizes to projects from all sectors of the economy that implement sustainability in an exemplary manner. The "German Award for Sustainability Projects" was presented at Bertelsmann's representative office. The evaluation focused on efficiency/benefits, innovation, relevance and timeliness.
The Zenaga Foundation received the 1st prize for the project series "Green Schools" in the category "Charitable Initiative". The top-class jury rated the project series, which combines climate protection, education and sport, as a very good project with a strong impact. Thanks to many participants and measures, the effectiveness is high and the project provides support on many levels - a good combination of climate protection and education.
In the area of climate protection, fruit trees are planted, in combination with solar systems,
spotlights on sports fields and mobile solar lamps recognize the teachers and Pupils learn about the benefits of various climate protection measures. With educational units
as well as sports, a strong knowledge and awareness is created.
One of the goals achieved so far is the planting of around 32,000 Fruit tree seedlings,
40 Green Schools and 900 solar systems and lamps, more than 140,000 people have been reached so far!
The implementation of the projects was only possible thanks to the good cooperation with other NGOs such as Sports For Future, Zenaga Foundation Senegal, Green Action Senegal, Foret International and the African Centre for Environment and Rural Development. Equally important was and is the financial support of private individuals and companies.
