More trees for Soweto

Konica Minolta South Africa, Information and Technology services company is holding a tree-planting ceremony in Soweto, South of Johannesburg to mark the 50 000th tree planted through its ongoing partnership with Food and Trees for Africa (FTFA. Over the past 11 years, the two organisations have planted trees at schools across the country. Late struggle icon Nelson Mandela was passionate about the youth and education - values Konica Minolta SA strongly supports. The company, therefore, decided to plant trees at sites in Soweto related to the country's former president, including his first home in Orlando East.
