Tree Planting Collaboration in Tanzania

RCMF is considering options for the "Rotary Plant a Tree" initiative. One option is working with Simple Hope to plant fruit bearing trees in Tanzania. According to Simple Hope "these trees would make an amazing impact on the amount of food provided daily for those living in the "bush" of Lake Eyasi". There is currently no direct aid going to the Hadzabe bushman, so the resources provided through Simple Hope are what currently sustain this camp of people. The trees will certainly help them move forward in their own sustainability".
