VATUKOLA Community at Kakabona, North West Guadalcanal has received a new set of nursery tools today, thanks to the Pan Oceanic Bank (POB) and its CSR project.
Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Pan Oceanic Bank Mr Nigel Adrian and his staffs donated the tools to the community as one of the first community that joined them in the project.
The tools were purposely to assist the community in their tree planting activities.
“We gave a grass-cutter, spades and bush knifes for them to keep the area near the trees clean and nice.
“This is donated to the community, so that the plains can grow well and gave beauty to the landscape,” the COO said.
Speaking in appreciation for the kind donation of the useful tools and mahogany trees, Community Chief Agusto has thanked POB for seeing it fit to assist his community, as well as the Ministry of Forestry and Research for the project to plant trees.
“First of all, we thank POB and Forestry for the approach and interest to supply mahogany seedlings to this particular community Vatukola.
“We are so fortunate. We will do our best to keep and nature these plants through the process,” Chief Agusto said.
The chief added that this project will encourage his community to work together and do some good in their mass grass lands, for something that they all can benefit from in the near future.
