350 students from St. Lukes Shisango Girls Secondary School and neighboring schools in Kenya, planted a total of 1,000 trees. Kenya Organisation for Environmental Education (KOEE), our LEAF organisation in Kenya, oversaw the implementation of the project. WED 2015 theme 'Seven Billion Dreams, One Planet, Consume with Care' calls for sustainable consumption of our resources. As such trees and forest are a significant resource to human well-being playing a critical role in various terrestrial ecosystems. The Republic of Kenya clearly understands the important role trees play thus determination to achieve and maintain at least 10% of tree cover. This is signified by numerous initiatives by the government in collaboration with the civil society and other private stakeholders.The 'Eco-Schools' programme initiated by the government a few years ago has made progress with county governments initiating the same at county level. Various schools, especially those in the Kenyan LEAF programme have been in the forefront of greening their schools through tree-planting activities. St. Lukes Shisango Secondary School celebrated its post-WED through a tree planting activity on 25 June. The school had acquired an additional acre of land and wished to establish a woodland. The woodland will be used by the school as a living laboratory, especially for biology and geography lessons. It is anticipated that the woodland will also attract many fauna, including birds and small animals. The woodland will also provide fuel for the school kitchen as well as timber for furniture construction. Sports, songs, dance and poems were used to highlight the importance of environmental conservation, particularly tree planting. Key guests and teachers gave speeches urging schools and the community to work together to ensure we safeguard our environment for future generations.
