Hidaya has planted over 400,000 seedlings since the inception of the One Million Trees project in 2008!
Hidaya gives seedlings to students, farmers and communities to encourage tree planting activity. It costs only $1 to plant and grow a tree. In addition Hidaya also provides brochures explaining the ecological benefits of trees and instructions how to successfully nurture them.
