The Anglican Church of Rwanda launched the Green Anglicans Movement Rwanda. While there is tree growing and capacity building around it, they have children at the center of it. During the launch and the days ensuing, the Church and Rural Development Inter-diocesan Service (RDIS) have been training amongst members of the community, primary school children on the importance of tree growing.
The children receive tree seedlings afterwards to plant and care for within the school and also carry some home to plant and care for with their families. Involving school children creates opportunities for the children and youth to explore environmental issues, engage in problem-solving, and take action to improve the environment.
The launch of the Green Anglicans Rwanda took place on November 16, 2022 during the annual Bishops and Clergy conference presided over by Archbishop Laurent Mbanda.
