Today the world gets a lifeline, an opportunity to hand over to future generations a world that is more stable, a healthier planet, fairer societies and more prosperous economies. Around the whole world, the environment is being destroyed every day; trees are reaped in every year in thousands hectare areas, air is being polluted, industrious gases released, change of climate resulted
In 2015, torrential rains wreaked havoc across Malawi, which was reported 176 deaths and many more missing, with more than 200,000 displaced.
The UN reported, “Nearly a quarter of a million people have been affected by the devastating floods that ripped through Malawi, many of the 230,000 who were forced to flee their homes have been unable to return and rebuild their lives. About 64,000 hectares (158,147 acres) of land were damaged.” The Malawi government declared half the country a disaster zone after the torrential rain.
Maestros Leadership Team launched MaGREEN (Maestros Green Project) after realizing that, floods are seen as threats to productivity and survival of human beings and all living things. Maestros decided to help out deal with the problem before it actually happens and not just after. So the theme of project was RESPOND BEFORE THE FLOOD.
Maestros partnered with Universities, Malawi government through the Ministry of Environmental Affairs, and local chiefs to ensure Project yields its intended purpose.
