Catch up with the Community Outreach team during November 2018

Tree seedling donations from SWT field headquarters in Kaluku are normally carried out at local schools; however, this year Kenya’s public schools closed early and so we worked instead with local self-help groups – mainly women’s groups.

Following up from the start of a new tree-planting initiative the previous month, with students from schools bordering Chyulu Hills National Park, a site visit was conducted to check on the status of the project.

We also canvassed 2 of 4 school districts to find out how the children are doing with the seeds that were provided by SWT for them to participate in a tree planting competition and were very encouraged by what we heard. All the children interviewed had a high germination rate.
