Tshikovha Graduates Academy is embarking on a pioneering venture to revitalize the natural environment in the conservation areas of Marloth Park and Komatipoort, situated in Mpumalanga under the Nkomazi Local Municipality.

Recognizing the pressing need for action, the academy is seeking collaboration with businesses, communities, and government departments to invest in the restoration efforts aimed at mitigating environmental degradation in the region.

The Nkomazi area frequently grapples with floods during heavy rainfall, a consequence often attributed to open spaces, inadequate drainage systems, and deforestation.

The adverse effects manifest in the form of dongas and other ecological damages, highlighting the urgency of intervention.

Central to the initiative is the identification of deforestation hotspots and illegal waste disposal sites, with a concerted effort towards promoting a cleaner environment through extensive tree planting campaigns.

By engaging in these programs, the academy not only aims to combat environmental degradation but also provides practical training opportunities for graduates, enabling them to acquire hands-on experience in environmental conservation.

A pivotal event in this endeavor is the celebration of World Environmental Day in Komatipoort at the Caravan Park on June 27, 2024.

This day serves as a global platform to raise awareness and mobilize action for environmental protection, making it an ideal occasion to galvanize support for the restoration efforts in Nkomazi.

World Environmental Day holds significant importance as it underscores the interconnectedness between human actions and the health of the planet.

This year’s theme underscores the urgency of environmental restoration, aligning perfectly with the objectives of Tshikovha Graduates Academy’s initiative.

The academy extends a heartfelt call for collaboration and participation from all stakeholders, emphasizing the collective responsibility in safeguarding the environment for present and future generations.

Businesses, communities, and government agencies are encouraged to join hands in this noble cause, contributing their expertise, resources, and commitment to fostering a sustainable future.

For further information and inquiries on how to get involved, interested parties are invited to reach out to Tshikovha Graduates Academy via email at info@tshikovhaacademy.org.za.

Together, let us embark on this journey towards environmental stewardship and restoration, ensuring a greener, healthier tomorrow for all.
