THI Insurance (Pvt) Limited has been a trusted insurance provider in Zimbabwe for over seven decades and continues to provide specialist services to the industry. Recognising the important synergy between the company’s overall business objectives, those of its valued clients and its stakeholders, THI has decided to partner with Friends of the Environment (FOTE), to support on-going reforestation initiatives. By pledging financial and technical support, the project aims to provide 250,000 tree seedlings for distribution to local farmers in Karoi by the end of 2016.

THI’s intention is to ensure that all farmers within the catchment area and eventually nation-wide have sustainable timber lots as well as orchards in their communities. The area is currently affected by deforestation with some farmers cutting down trees to cure their tobacco. FOTE provides technical support and project supervision, as well as invaluable advice and project liaison.
