MGI Alekim comments on Earth Day initiative

"We all have a role to play in creating a sustainable environment around us. Each of us has something that we can offer Mother Nature. Trees and forests play an essential role in mitigating the dire impact of climate change that has seriously affected our planet today. Celebrating/marking Earth Day is one of the most important things we can do to contribute to the health of the planet. The health of our planet is essential to our own health and well-being and to our future. On this year’s Earth Day April 22nd, we aligned ourselves with SDG 13 “Climate Change” by planting trees at Karura Kanyungu School. We managed to plant about 500 trees. Thanks to all social change makers who participated in this noble activity."
