Kenya Education Management Institute (KEMI), committed to promoting excellence in education, is making a profound impact on the local community with its recent tree donation initiative. KEMI, under the leadership of James Kioi, Communication Officer, and Symon Ngatia, Head of Research & Consultancy, has generously donated trees to three local schools as part of its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, closely aligned with the Education for Sustainable Development Initiative.
From the 19th to the 22nd of September 2023, KEMI’s dedicated team embarked on a mission to enrich the environment and educate future generations about the significance of environmental stewardship. The selected schools for this tree donation initiative include:
- Jamhuri High School
- Kiambu High School
- Highridge Secondary School
- Raila Educational Centre
The tree donations were not merely a gesture of goodwill but a meaningful step towards nurturing a sustainable future. KEMI’s team engaged with students at each school, emphasizing the crucial role trees play in mitigating climate change, improving air quality, and fostering a greener, healthier planet. The educational sessions were followed by interactive tree-planting activities where students actively participated, sowing the seeds of responsibility for their environment.
Highridge Secondary School, located amidst the urban landscape of Nairobi, witnessed an innovative approach as KEMI encouraged students to create a mini-forest in containers within the school premises, proving that sustainability can thrive in even the most urban settings.
KEMI’s tree donation initiative embodies the essence of the Education for Sustainable Development Initative, instilling in students not only a love for nature but also a sense of commitment to preserving it for generations to come.
James Kioi, Communication Officer, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “We are proud to be a part of this initiative that not only contributes to the greening of our environment but also educates and empowers our youth to be responsible stewards of our planet.”
Symon Ngatia, Head of Research & Consultancy, added, “This initiative aligns perfectly with our commitment to education for sustainable development. We hope that our efforts will inspire the next generation to take proactive steps towards environmental conservation.”
KEMI’s tree donation initiative is a testament to its dedication to fostering a greener and more sustainable Kenya. The institute remains committed to making a lasting impact on both education and the environment, underscoring the belief that education and sustainability go hand in hand.
