“You don’t need to be natural scientists to understand and engage in environmental sustainability activities,” said Lena.

A majority of the staff also walk to town at least on alternate days instead of boarding a matatu and where possible hike a lift from a staff member when they traveling to the same direction. For sure we are walking the talk!

You too can contribute to conserving our environment, by properly disposing off litter, observing environmental days to reflect on your contribution to conserving the environment as well as coming up with new ways to reaching to mitigating climate change. After all nature needs us and not the other way round!
