Kipepeo Green Heritage aims at planting 2 million fruit trees within 2 years. Planting fruit trees not only helps increase tree cover in Kenya but also contributes towards nutritional health of schoolgoing children and communities.
To address climate change, it is vital to acknowledge that culture plays a key role as it determines people’s behaviors and value systems. Largely, African heritage is vested in spiritual beliefs, songs, dances and narrations. These include tangible and intangible heritage as diverse as the way people utilize nature for firewood, medicine, fruits, craft and building materials. Therefore, putting in place mechanisms that ensure that the value of environmental conservation is passed down to generations cannot be understated.
By adopting the approach of life-long learning, Kipepeo Green Heritage is rising to the challenges of the environmental agenda in Kenya and has resolved to wake up and take action. Therefore, we will harness the youth demographic dividend and nurture environmental champions for this, and future generations.
Kipepeo Green Heritage will engage youth; age 6 to 18 in planting fruit trees by partnering with primary and secondary schools in Kenya across the 47 counties. The environment underlies all the 17 global goals. Thus, through its efforts, Kipepeo Green Heritage will effectively contribute towards the advancement of other global goals: Zero Hunger; Good Health and Well-being; Reduced Inequalities; Sustainable Cities and Communities. Eventually, this will contribute towards social-economic development in communities where the partner learning institutions are located.
Kipepeo Green Heritage aims at planting 2 million fruit trees within 4 years. Planting fruit trees not only helps increase tree cover in Kenya but also contributes towards nutritional health of school-going children, women, the specially enabled and their communities.
