Trees to build culture of tolerance

He said, “Why trees and tolerance? Let me explain. I am an art teacher who is in constant touch with children. I can be a great influence on them. When they plant trees with a conscience, they forget their race, skin colour, and they forget all their differences. Only the tree remains there. I want to show them when something is decided with dedication, they can make it happen.”
