In Makame Village in the Hoima region, Uganda, Wandera Wilson manages a nursery that produces an estimated 200,000 seedlings a year. He purchases seeds from the national forest authority as well as private collectors, depending on the type.

“We believe that a good tree is born from a good deed,” he says.

@thexylom@journa.host avatar

Wilson uses the funds from the sale of his seedlings to support his three kids and buy a sewing machine for his wife. He even helped one of his neighbors buy a motorcycle, an asset that can be shared amongst the entire community.

“That’s where the love begins — from the local man,” he says. “The connection increases the desire to protect them later on.”

Today, the $2B Mumbai Coastal Road finally opened after long delays.

The IPCC criticized the 8-lane superhighway as a “maladaptive” climate infrastructure. Indigenous fisheries have nearly been halved before its opening.

Meet Ayden. He’s 8 and no longer speaks. He has tantrums when frustrated and does not play with other children at school. In 2019, his parents learned that his lead levels were 20 times the current federal level of concern. How did this happen? (via MLK50)


thexylom, to memphis
@thexylom@journa.host avatar

One doctor said Ayden would ‘come around.’ Another diagnosed him with autism and ADHD. What his parents didn’t know was that their once bubbly child disappeared into a looming darkness right in their home and lead poisoning was likely to blame. (via MLK50: Justice through Journalism)
