Watoto children’s villages

Watoto has paired with ‘World Tree’s Technology’ to create an ecosystem in war – torn Uganda that is rich with trees for the sustainable funding of Watoto villages throughout Uganda.

World Tree Technologies is home of the Empress Splendor™ Tree, the legendary and sacred tree of the Orient. With exciting characteristics like growing as much as 20 feet per year and having the ability to re-grow itself up to 7 times after being cut down, the Empress is an obvious choice for global reforestation, bioremediation, aesthetic improvements and much more. This tree is 100% non-invasive and completely non-poisonous! The lumber is a high value hardwood, very strong, yet it is extremely light weight, and has a silky quality that makes it easy to work with. The Empress Splendor™ is also fire and insect resistant, and can produce a tremendous amount of oxygen while sequestering 6 times more carbon dioxide than other trees. Source

  2. That tree reminds me of chestnut tree we had in our backyard, with all its broad leaves. Beautiful. What a wonderful idea for the villages. Thanks for sharing.
