School Greening Program
Mount Kenya Environmental Conservation Organization is currently working with 15 schools within Embu County to promote tree planting activities in schools and among the pupils. The programme involves working with schools management to identify spaces within the schools where trees are planted. The trees planted in schools are taken care of by the pupils till they mature. This program is aimed at instilling culture of environmental conservation among the schools. Already we have planted 15,000 tree seedlings within the schools compounds . The trees planted in schools help in providing shade, habitat for birds, fresh air and strong winds.
