Happy Earth Day!

One of Kenya’s Chief environmental Concerns is Deforestation. At present, less than one quarter of the land remains forested, and an estimated 19 square miles are lost to deforestation annually. Imbako promotes tree planting activities in neighboring schools, churches, buildings and homes. The trees not only reduce soil erosion, but also concurrently serve towards building a greener community, improve existing local rain patterns and support local apiculture and agriculture...Happy Earth Day!

The Global Impact Project - Kenya Fundraiser

So….graduate school is challenging; the workload is heavy, assignments are not easy, and so when it comes to course projects we may end up opting for the simplest ones; those that would not stretch us any further from our already hectic schedule. We may end up taking on a project simply to get a passing grade or to attain the needed credit hours …But, working with the Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) MBA students at Georgia State University, one can see that they are different; these hardworking students have chosen to go above and beyond and have devoted their time and resources towards a project that has stretched them further …they chose to work on an initiative that would have a positive global lifelong impact.
