The #Treedom Campaign Continues in Had Dingli
This January The QLZH Foundation, through its sister brands QuickLets and Zanzi Homes, has teamed up with the Dingli Local Council in order to continue its #Treedom campaign. For each home sold through Zanzi Homes, the proptech company plants a tree – and this time, the project also included the Had Dingli San Nikola Primary School, along with other NGOs, including the Scouts.
In conjunction with this month’s “Jum is-Sigar”, children found themselves active on the field, planting trees around the Scouts’ Had Dingli headquarters. The trees were donated by the QLZH Foundation, whilst a team from Zanzi Homes also gave a hand in the tree planting. Steve Mercieca, Chairman of the Foundation, said that “thanks to the Had Dingli Local Council, we have been able to contribute even more to our one-home-one-tree project, namely, by adding trees in a place that is used by a large part of the community, and also by involving children and inciting environmental awareness from a young age”.
Sandro Azzopardi, Mayor of Had-Dingli said “It’s great to see children in the community take part in such initiatives. This is in partnership with Ekoskola within the San Nikola Primary School, but also in appreciation of the “Sejhet is-Sigar” initiative, introduced by parliamentary secretary Silvio Parnis. Here, various NGOs, including the Scouts, will benefit from a greener and cleaner estate. We want to encourage voluntary organisations and the local community to engage children in such activities as our sustainable future depends on it”.
The QLZH Foundation and the Local Council plan on planting more trees in the locality, including playing fields and public spaces, in order to create more vibrant and diverse green zones. Steve Mercieca concludes that “if today we can enjoy a picnic in the shade, it is because years ago someone decided to plant a tree. If we are to positively impact the future, we must do it now”.
