The Green Nkwen Village Project


Today, @mr-greens met with the paramount ruler of Nkwen Village in Bamenda III Sub Division of the North West Region to discuss the Green Nkwen Village Project which has 5 programs of intervention that aim at protecting water catchments to improve water quality and quantity, establishing the Nkwen Community Forests, distributing the ecoDesigned reusable face masks to beat COVID-19, reducing tire pollution via the upcycling of tires into erosion embankments, seats and eco-houses, promoting environmental education and action, as well as beautifying the Nkwen Fon’s palace with trees and flowers.
At the palace, @mr-greens was warmly welcomed and given the opportunity to discuss with the traditional ruler of Nkwen Fondom, HRM Fon Azehfor III for over 45 minutes during which they established a road map for the Green Nkwen Village Project.
