Give Me A Cup Of

Tree planting is a venture that has taken place in western kenya as one of the most important economic activities. Tea is grown in large scale and considered the second largest producer of tea after kericho. Even with these large production, many farmers still languish in poverty simply because because tea is sold at a very cheap price to the nearby factory which later sell at a very large profit margin. they therefore need some education and sensitization on world of local prices of the commodity and their sights and obligations to the factory and farmers union for them to have a fair share of their sweat.
