In the journey of promoting tree cover in our country, in the fight against climate change. Roads led to St.John’s High school in Machakos, Kenya.
February being a month known for expression of love, we got some from the students, teachers, partnering organizations, and other participants. May we always share the love even after February. The students were happy and gave us a warm welcome to their school.
What went down?
Our co-founder & executive director, Kaluki Paul, managed to interact with the students. Where he lectured them on the importance of protecting our environment, and conservation at large.
He was keen to help them understand that it’s not just about planting trees but being intentional. By reminding them of the importance of growing indigenous and fruit trees. As much as we may be determined to grow more trees, we need to go for the ‘right’ ones.
They were also able to launch an environmental club for the school. The students can now be able to continue what was started, too many years to come. Hence getting an opportunity to get to learn and understand the key role when it comes to protecting our environment.
What can we say?
This was a great experience, one that will remain in our hearts in the coming days.
Viva St.John’s High school for championing environmental care, and cheers to the growing community of Nature lovers. Mazingira Na Amani our partners, we salute you.
We are only getting started.
