Woman rep leads drive for energy saving jikos in support of tree planting initiative

The initiative which is a partnership of the Woman Rep’s office Njeri Maina in partnership with the Ministry of Energy seeks to encourage the residents to be champions of tree planting drive. Maina told the Standard dubbed ‘Jaza Miti, the initiative is an effort by President William Ruto seeking to plant at least 15 billion trees by 2032 in a bid to counter climate change issues. “I want to encourage the residents of Kirinyaga County to be front runners in this drive. In partnership with the Ministry of Energy, we have distributed over 50,000 seedlings and energy-saving jikos to continue supporting the president in the tree-planting initiative,” she said.

      This is a great initiative that will aid in saving our forests by reducing charcoal burning and in addition improve the forest by planting more trees.

              @rotich_kim We cannot exhaust the important of forests in our nature. Planting trees where they were cut and where none existed would make a positive impact.
