Challenge

Tree planting is still not embraced in Bunyala community especially among youth. There is still a believe that trees grow naturally hence no need to plant them. However the naturally growing trees have been depleted because of firewood and other community wood needs. This has affected micro- climate in the area leading to uncertainty in rainfall patterns and other negative effects of climate change.

Solution

By engaging children in planting and caring for the trees, they will have increased consciousness on environmental conservation especially in this era of global warming/ Climate Change. 200 children will be selected in each of the 10 primary schools and issued with four (4) tree seedlings; the child will plant 2 seedlings at school and 2 seedlings at home. He/ she will the take care of the tree for a period of six months. In a period of 2 years, 32,000 trees would be planted and surviving.

Long-Term Impact

Increased tree cover in the area. Increased knowledge on tree planting. Over 32,000 trees will be planted every year in the area. This will lead to improved micro- climate and contribute to reduction on global warming. Over 200 households where these children come from will benefit from the trees planted. The activity is expected to have a multiplier effect where it will be replicated in other schools and community within Busia county as a whole.
