Volunteers planting trees in Sri Lanka for IVD (2017).

UNV Sri Lanka planting trees for IVD

On 5 December 2017, UNV Sri Lanka celebrated International Volunteer Day by planting 5,000 trees in a drought-prone area in Sri Lanka. 

UNV with the special support of UNDP Sri Lanka under the Climate Change Adaptation Project (CCAP) joined hands with farm organizations, students of the Wayamba University, DMC Srilanka, the Volunteer Task Force and nearly 500 community volunteers to plant a select variety of trees on the riparian buffer of 10 selected tanks in the region of Galgamuwa Kurunegala.
