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!!
