I have been planting trees since I was ten years old! However, I actively engaged in environmental activism when I was in high school through the Environmental Club that I found in 2016. After clearing high school, I found the Tree Growers Association of Kenya, which is based in Kenya.
I am currently pursuing Environmental engineering in Budapest, Hungary.
The nature of my conservation activities mainly focuses on tree planting and environmental education. Most of my activities have been within Uasin Gishu, Baringo, and Elgeyo Marakwet Counties.
What is your motivation?
I receive several messages from people, both young and old, who have developed an interest in growing trees because of what I do. Such messages and constant consultation encourage me to keep doing my best with what I love doing.
Do I feel any impact from my work? YES!
I have reached over 100,000 people and planted /Influenced planting of about 40,000 trees!!
As a result of my work, I have interacted with many people and received support from strangers. I realized the existence of kind-hearted people who value the protection and conservation of the environment.
Any challenges: Conservation activities requires lots of funds. Getting such funds is difficult.
But, the journey has been fulfilling.
My Message: Let’s all join hands in restoring nature because I cannot do this alone. Together we can!
