Ncell and Nepal Youth Council to plant 7700 trees in all 77 districts, 7 Provinces

Marking the World Environment Day 2024, Ncell and Nepal Youth Council (NYC) are planting 7700 trees in 77 districts of 7 Provinces under One Youth One Plant campaign #OneYouthOnePlant. Under this joint initiative, mass tree plantation will be done across all the 77 districts in all 7 Provinces on June 28, 2024 coinciding with the World Plantation Day.

Ncell under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative has collaborated with NYC for the launch of One Youth One Tree campaign wherein 100 youths from each district from 77 districts will lead to plant 100 trees in their areas totaling to plantation of 7700 trees across 7 Provinces. This campaign will be carried out in collaboration with provincial and local governments. As a sustainability modality of this initiative, youths from each district who will participate in this noble drive will also take the responsibility of overall care and maintenance of the plant.

Ncell believes that this initiative will help to inculcate the message of responsible action among the youths of Nepal. Ncell under its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives has been driving various social projects under Health, Education, Environment and Youth Empowerment programme among others in different parts of the country in collaboration with various partners.

“Today, marking the World Environment Day, we are delighted to announce this exemplary initiative of plantation of 7700 trees in 77 districts in collaboration with NYC. We believe that via these kind of social initiatives we will be reaching all the regional footprints and engage with the local communities and youths for social projects that will further help us create a value addition among the general public and we are hopeful that our ongoing collaboration with NYC will help to amplify the impact of the overall project,” said Bishakha Lakshmi Khada, Head of Corporate Communications and CSR at Ncell.

Ncell has been working in the area of Youth empowerment, entrepreneurship development, leadership, livelihood support, among other areas in collaboration with NYC, and other stakeholders under its social initiatives and in line with this Ncell has collaborated with NYC for supporting in the National Youth Conference which is being organized later this year marking the International Day of Youths.

Saroj Baniya, Founder and Central President of NYC sharing his thoughts said that NYC has initiated tree plantation campaign, prioritizing the national agenda set by the Government of Nepal. “This campaign is launched in collaboration with Ncell, aiming to engage local youth in environmental protection and foster social transformation. NYC has been actively involved in environmental protection and climate change initiatives since long, connecting youth at various levels”.

To this date, Ncell and NYC have also successfully completed Provincial Youth Conference in 5 different Provinces. These conferences are aimed at capacity enhancement of the youths at the provincial level via workshop, engagement activities, knowledge sessions, leadership sessions that addressed various topics such as youth entrepreneurship, climate change, and the role of youth in achieving sustainable development goals. Participating youth formulated provincial action plans, which were then submitted to provincial chief ministers, ministers of social development, and other relevant agencies. The youth empowerment conference has been completed in Bagmati, Lumbini, Karnali, Far West and Koshi province and similar events will soon take place in the remaining two provinces along with support from Provincial government.
