BEYOND NORMAL – the climate change Challenge!!

The challenge – Plant trees at ANY Time Of The Year and ensure 100% success rate growth through commitment to see them grow.

This was not the first primary school to take up the challenge in makueni..

The last primary school has achieved a 100% tree growth success rate, the challenge for others is to meet this standard set by their colleague’s in kilome.We hear a lot of..” this is the wrong type of tree to grow here” or ” how can you plant trees at this time of the year”? Well for the children – some other child has done it, therefore failure is the adult near them Not giving them a chance to prove that they can do it too..And as a bonus, this tree planting included a special guest ‘ Africa’s First blind African to Climb the world tallest free standing mountain , as well as Africa’s tallest – Mt. Kilimanjaro – Blind!! Mr Douglas..This event was supported by Community adventure guides Partners – summit seekers, kenya environmental network, kithangathini youth tree nursary, parents, teacher’s, the board and the ever enthusiastic pupils at kituiuni primary!!

Are schools biggest culprits in destroying the environment..!?

With many schools consuming 1-2 fully mature trees per week

So as to feed your children. A month of 15 school in a sub county doing this means 60 mature trees a month or 180 mature trees a term that NO student or school plants!!

Where are ALL these tree’s coming from…?

Died, went to Heaven & Returned!!

Just had an encounter with this “buddy” on his back. please don’t laugh coz this is serious stuff!!

Just checked in the loos (external toilets) to loose some weight for the evening! well someone else thought otherwise – as i began loosing weight this giant moth checks in to keep me company and decides to play summers within the 6 walls of the room. Just then messages start checkin in on my phone and i forget the moth.

Suddenly – doof!! then somthing soft pointed hits my lower leg – again and again at different angles. Now thats not a moth!. Look down with the low light of phones screen and this mAaSive Foot long (body) rat is in the small room with me. Now starts the drama….
