Tree planting is an environmental requirement for admission at the Canadian College of Modern Technology, CCMT, in Mile 91.

Thinking about the future and the impact of climate change on our environment, CCMT takes tree planting very seriously. Trees bear the great impact on climate change.

Situated in the middle of Savanna grassland atop the “Silicon Hills” of Mile 91, CCMT understands the importance of environmental sustainability. As a response, CCMT added environmental requirements to the list of admission requirements to the college. CCMT requires each new student to plant a tree on its 100-acre property before admission. Both the trees and the planting tools are provided by the college.

This year’s trees were donated by our friend and neighbor, Miro Forestry, a plantation development company from Royanka, near Mile 91. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security in Sierra Leone is also excited about our initiative and have promised to provide us with trees through its forestry division, each year, for all admitted students

Students are beginning a legacy that will live on – alongside their education, careers, families and future successes.

We are very optimistic that in the near future, these trees will not only create connection between students and the college but will also provide shade, protection from erosion and beauty to our environment
