As in many of our Young Ranger programmes, the students are taken to the latest area of reforestation – eleven years on and this year was no different.
On one recent visit to the Morro Pai Velho, local resident João and his wife saw the group of Young Rangers on their work without adequate footwear. He decided there and then to order 30 pairs of wellington boots to equip the students.
He said that when he was growing up, he hadn’t any to wear and was so impressed by REGUA’s commitment to the younger generation that he wanted to find a way to reward them with this generous present.
Many thanks for your generosity João!
