                    It's great to see the Kenyan government taking steps towards environmental conservation by declaring a public holiday for planting and growing trees. The target of 15 billion trees is ambitious, but with collective effort, it can be achieved. Planting trees not only helps in mitigating climate change but also provides various ecological benefits such as soil conservation, water retention, and habitat creation for wildlife. It's a positive step towards a sustainable future for Kenya.

                          This is quite remarkable. Many days have been set aside but one for climate change sensitization is one to be highly regarded.
