Kenyan First Lady Rachel Ruto launches strategy to plant 500 million trees by 2032

The First Lady, Mama Rachel Ruto, has officially launched the First Lady’s Landscape and Ecosystem Restoration Strategy and implementation plan for growing 500 million trees. The strategy will fast-track the actualization of the vision by the President, to grow 15 billion trees by the year 2032. The implementation plan incorporates women, youth and learners. It advocates for green financing to bridge funding gaps in restoration activities, incorporates agroforestry, promotes green jobs and nature-based enterprises, and encourages women and youth to participate in the green and circular economies. The testing and validation process of the strategy has seen approximately 3 Million trees grown in forests and in learning institutions. Additionally, The First Lady has adopted 200 hectares (500 acres) at Kakamega Forest in Shikusa Block for restoration. This adoption laid the groundwork for similar adoptions by spouses of County Governors and Members of Parliament across the country, with the technical support from the Office of The First Lady and the Kenya Forest Service. Mama Rachel Ruto urged all like-minded stakeholders to form a united front in support of Kenya’s tree-growing efforts. "Connecting with like-minded organisations and individuals strengthens our impact and fosters a shared vision for a sustainable future," she said. "By joining hands, we can amplify our impact on a national scale, maximise resources, leverage the strengths of our partners, and create a domino effect that propels us towards our ambitious goal of growing 500 million trees." https://www.citizen.digital/news/first-lady-rachel-ruto-launches-strategy-to-plant-500-million-trees-by-2032-n337470

                          This initiative by the Kenyan First Lady is a commendable effort in addressing environmental conservation. Planting 500 million trees by 2032 will significantly contribute to combating deforestation and climate change.

                                    This is a beautiful campaign that helps in bringing back the lost glory to our environment in Kenya. Growing trees is a great strategy to restoring our landscape and protect our water catchment areas. This is worth adoption and all of us must come together to support this endeavour.
