This is an environmental educational project that seeks to create awareness on the importance of the sustainable environment and agriculture to young minds thereby building an environmentally friendly learning environment (Greenspace) to achieve this.
Green Space Project
- The practical training will be on:
Landscaping: the students will be taught on how to plan a garden on a small piece of land.
- Agriculture: the students will be taught how to plant flowers and other canopy plants.
- Upcycling: the students will be taught how to re-use wastes to make a playground and eye-catching crafts.
- Society/culture: the students will be taught other cultures to develop their capacity to tolerate diverse cultures.
We organize capacity building sessions (workshops on energy saving culture, gardening basics, landscaping, waste management, recycling, youth in Agric and project management techniques) and post training project delivery. The Rhealyz Green School manual acts as a guide to the capacity building process. We also have a post event monitoring and evaluation mechanism.
We have been able to engage over 23 Secondary schools, and we have been able to reach over 21,400 students in the area of advocacy and implemented projects with 6200 students over the span of seven years.
We have also embarked on a strategic ‘House to House’ Tree-Planting exercise in various communities. We have planted over 10,000 trees, 30,000 flowers, and 4,000 shrubs/plants in over 100 rural and urban communities. Some of the communities we have touched are; Aaye, Ita Oniyan, Iloro community in Igbaraoke and lots more. We have also embarked on various advocacy measures using our media platforms to encourage communities adopt tree planting and sustenance practices.
We have partnered with private, public and international organizations like Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and Education, NYSC MDGs project, Green Impact, Lifewind International, Public/Private schools and lots more.
We intend to start a permaculture/nature development project soon with some of our international partners in some selected primary and secondary schools
