Imbako and the Plant-a-Tree for your School Initiative
The project aims to create awareness of environmental hazards and appreciation of the physical environment. One of Kenya’s chief concerns is deforestation. At present, less than one quarter of the land is forested, and an estimated 19 square miles is lost to deforestation annually.
In order to educate the youth on IT skills and bridge the gap in technology between rural and urban communities while concurrently promoting environmental awareness, Imbako initiated the plant a tree for your school initiative. Basically, for every computer donated to their school, students will be required to plant a certain number of trees in their local neighborhood areas- schools, homes, churches, etc in order to be eligible for continued ownership and access to the computers and to basic computer lessons.
The trees will also reduce soil erosion, and concurrently serve towards building a greener community. They will further improve existing rain patterns and support Agriculture.
The details on the specific number and type of trees to be planted are available, and will be provided upon request.
For: all students and organizations who may have an interest in Environmental Health.
Also any one that may have a desktop or laptop computer to donate may be interested.
