On 22nd of September 2012, several members of the Lions club of Kampala Cosmopolitan set out to be the change they wanted to see in the environment and in Uganda as a whole.
They planted 200 seedlings of trees in the Kampala Golf course. The trees included 100 seedlings of Eucalyptus, 50 Seedlings of Neem tree and 50 Seedlings of Maesopsis.
The activity was well received by the club management who promised to take good care of the trees so as to keep the course green and flourishing. The club management was represented by the Vice Captain of the Uganda Golf club – Mr. Paul Batte, who came with his 5 year old son.
The activity was attended by 15 members of the club, 10 visitors some of whom were from the press – New Vision (Uganda’s Leading Daily newspaper) and well wishers both from the Golf club and outsiders.
Also present throughout the whole exercise was the President of Lions Club of Kampala Central – Lion Yesse Mubangizi.
The president of Cosmo – Lion Pamela Tumwebaze thanked all who spared time to come and be apart of this good cause. She was happy with the turn up and encouraged all members to continue being active so that the club could lead by example.
