At exactly 3:23pm Kenyan time on Friday November 10, I planted a tree during an eventbubbed “adopt a tree” by one of the students clubs in my institution. I am not a member of CODSAD (CommunityDevelopment Student Association of Daystar) but I was on duty taking photos and getting any newsworthy happenings.All I can remember is that I switched off my camera and picked a seedling and palnted it. What remains is for me to take care of it until it can sustain itself.
Daystar University was awarded a Silver Award by the Total Eco-Challenge initiative for its endevours of planting trees in a semi-arid region (Eastern Kenya). This is therefore a continuation of what has been happening in the past.
I have not only responded to Wangari Mathais call of planting a billion trees but have also contributed to a better environment that may see an improvement in climate changes that have affected the current unpredictable weather (if it is not the end of the world).
Tonight when I finally get my body to bed I will pat myself somewhere and say “good boy, you planted a second tree this year”.
Plant a tree today, tomorrow,… just do it before the end of the year.
Thats me planting my tree
