On Saturday 7 October 2017, YAACC launched the Tchemba and Muwango Forest Conservation Project in Mzimba.
The project, which is supported by the Global Greengrants Fund to the tune of $4701, is going to be implemented in twelve months. The project seeks to help in conserving the indigenous Tchemba and Muwango Forests in the areas of Group village Headmen Yesaya Shumba and Jacob Phiri in Mzimba District.
Speaking at the occasion, GVH Yesaya Shumba commneded YAACC for showing commitment to help his community. He asked his subjects to support the project fully because it is for the benefit of all.
Equally happy, GVH Jacob Phiri also commended YAACC for choosing to help his community to conserve Muwango Forest. He asked YAACC to be sincere with its promise to help the community.
After the launch ceremonies, site visits to the concerned forests were conducted and what was seen confirmed the level of damage to the forests. This makes the project a timely intervention.
