Kathmandu : Marking the World Environment Day 2024, Ncell and Nepal Youth Council (NYC) are set to plant 7,700 trees in 77 districts across the country under One Youth One Plant campaign #OneYouthOnePlant.

Under this joint initiative, mass tree plantation will be done across all the 77 districts in all seven Provinces on June 28, 2024 coinciding with the World Plantation Day, Ncell said in a press note today.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, Ncell has collaborated with the NYC to launch the “One Youth One Tree” campaign. In this initiative, 100 youths from each of Nepal’s 77 districts will plant 100 trees in their respective areas, contributing to a total of 7700 trees planted across all 7 Provinces. This campaign will be carried out in collaboration with provincial and local governments.
