Mvule Community Development 
Chris went to this village to supply the tree seedlings for members to plant since it is a rainy season. Trips like these normally start by making sure the trees are well arranged to be transported very well, the village leaders are informed about the intended visit a day before they prepare the members to receive trees, Chris set off at 10 am , when he reached the village he found 38 members who were waiting for the trees, Chris observed how eager the members were when they saw trees in the car, the women led by Mr farida tamwenda sang songs of thanks to Kibo for giving them the trees. The chairperson of the village Mr Muhammad who took the lead in mobilizing the members thanked Kibo for joining the rest of the world in conserving the environment however the chairperson cautioned the members to make sure they plant trees and take care of them as Chris has been teaching them. Chris emphasized the importance of planting trees to the community members, he said trees are verr important to our lives because they give us oxygen Chris also said planting and taking care of trees equates to producing children and taking of them so that in future they are able to take care of their parents . Chris then led the members to Mr Hakim’s garden to demonstrate how to plant the trees, Mr Hakim had prepared the holes and put the required manure where he wanted to plant at least 5 musizi trees. By the time Chris left the village members had started planting their trees however Chris promised to come back on 5/05/2021 to follow up and check how the members planted the trees.
