Video Script

Hi there! Are you frustrated with the changing climate patterns around the world today, with too much talk and less action? Worry, no more. I’m Brenda, from Trinity Forestry Services Uganda Limited with a vision to create a climate resilient society, through encouraging climate smart action, projects, and solutions. Trinity Forestry Services has been part of the ICAC 2021 organized by Green Team Academy to help teams be the change.

I’m a Nature Corp, an agroforester, and environmentalist by profession and passion. We’re having a goal of planting a million plus trees by December, 2022. And yes, through the ICAC21 in the 90 days of the challenge, we’ve planted 23,366 trees with 50 farmers who engaged in a farmer participatory approach. We used agroforestry because we believe agroforestry is a nature-based solution that enables us to mitigate climate change as well as ensuring food security.

Come join us on this journey. Check us out on our website. You can join us on our social media platforms, Trinity Forestry Services Uganda Limited.. Thank you so much. See you there, Nature Corps!
