Recyclers provide clothes for African children
Members of the public in the North West are being
invited to swap their unwanted Christmas presents
while helping African children.
Residents are being asked to donate any old and
unwanted school uniforms during a recycling open day
being held at St John’s RC Primary on Chepstow Road,
Chorlton from 2-4pm on Saturday January 30
th
.
The items will then be donated to the Operation Sunshine
charity and be used to clothe disadvantaged children in
countries such as Rwanda and Zimbabwe. The school is
hoping to beat its previous record, when more than
1,300 items of clothing were sent to the charity as the
uniform design changed last summer.

multi-million pound agreement to launch
can be f
ound at www the first African carbon credit scheme.
Partnering together on a Kenyan REDD
(Reduced Emissions from Deforestation
and Degradation) carbon project, over 2.5
million tonnes of carbon will be released
into the global carbon trading market.
Proving that carbon offset opportunities are both
economically and environmentally viable within Africa, Nedbank will
acquire carbon credits from the avoided deforestation of the Wildlife Works’
Kasigau Corridor Project to 2026. Recently awarded gold level approval under the
Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance forestry protection standard, the
project is Africa’s first REDD project developed at scale. It is currently seeking
registration from the benchmark voluntary carbon market registry, the VCS
(Voluntary Carbon Standard).
With African countries’ communities and economies some of the most vulnerable
to the effects of climate change, REDD projects, such as the Kasigau Wildlife
Corridor, are working to help local landowners monetise their forest and
biodiversity assets. The 200,000 hectare dryland forest and savannah grassland
strip is under constant threat from farming, grazing, logging for fire wood, charcoal
and hunting of bush meat.
