Ongoing Offline: The campaign is currently ongoing offline, and as a result, the fundraising process continues.

Summary

The campaign aims, in its first phase, to plant 100,000 seedlings of the Al Ghadha tree in Al Ghada Parks in the province of Unaizah. The project consists of planting 400,000 seedlings divided into four stages, with each stage resulting in the planting of 100,000 seedlings. The plantation of each seedling, taking into account its watering and protection for three years, will cost 35 riyals, which amounts to a total of 3,500,000 riyals for each phase. 

Challenge

The region is currently facing a multitude of environmental challenges, such as the deterioration of natural plant cover in the areas due to overgrazing, an increasing rate of sand creep, the migration of wild animals due to the deterioration of their natural habitats, and the desertification of regions that were once full of wild trees.


Solution

This campaign aims to contribute to enhancing and sustaining natural resource management and the optimal use of tertiary treated water through afforestation as part of such initiatives. It aims to halt the deterioration of natural plant covers and restore degraded sites. This will be achieved by planting 100,000 trees in the desert area during the first stage and engaging society through volunteer work.


Moreover, the project aims to serve as a source for raising environmental awareness regarding the role of trees in stabilizing the soil, preventing sand creep, and increasing community awareness of the dangers of desertification and the importance of afforestation efforts. Lastly, it aims to inform the public about the psychological benefits resulting from environmental preservation, thereby contributing to the effort to create a green Saudi Arabia.
