One Shot One Green Campaign
The Ministry of Environment of Rwanda, Rwanda Basketball Federation (FERWABA), and Orion Basketball Club are collaborating on a campaign that uses the game of basketball as a mean to encourage and boost tree planting efforts in Rwanda.
The One Shot One Green Campaign promises to plant a tree for every basketball shot taken throughout the Champion and All-Star Tournaments, aiming to plant no less than 100,000 trees a year. The initiative is set to begin in November, with Dar as a sponsor, and aims to promote environmental awareness and accelerate the country’s tree planting efforts.
The campaign was unveiled at a high-level breakfast meeting in Kigali on September 29th 2023. In attendance were the Ministry of Environment, FERWABA, Orion organizations, key stakeholders and partners to discuss and share their expertise with the goal of creating significant impact and contributing to a healthier environment and planet.
