• HANDS OFF OUR FORESTS! Don’t lift the ban on logging public & community forests in Kenya
    Forests offer important benefits that are crucial to our planet’s survival through; purifying the air we breathe, providing water catchment areas to prevent erosion and providing a buffer to extreme climate change. In Kenya, our forests are home to rare and endangered species such as the mountain bongo, the African forest elephant, and the black rhino. Our forests are also vital for the livelihoods of millions of local communities dependent on them for food and medicine. Kenya is one of many African governments giving the green light to the cutting down of forests in Africa; from clearing the Congo Basin Rainforest for development of oil blocks, to illegal distribution of permits and exportation of timber in Mali. We must bring an end to the constriction of the lungs of Africa, our forests. We cannot stand by and let this happen. We must urge the Kenyan government to stop the lifting of the ban on logging. Sign the petition and join me in sending a strong stance to Soipan Tuya, the Cabinet Secretary, Environment, Climate Change & Forestry that we will not stand by and watch as our forests get destroyed!

  • Clean Earth, better health
    The entire country is littered up; hence the work that needs to be done is so much. My campaign requires a group of scientists to design a substance that will emulsify the waste and provide a lasting solution. Once we clean, we will need a system like bins to be exposed appropriately. So we need a huge team of scientists to educate Kenyans and control littering. Another team of gatherers and tree planters also campaigned to have people utilize these areas to provide food. Most importantly, we need funds.

  • Stop illegal sand harvesting in Mai Mahiu Kenya
    - The Mai Mahiu area is made of loose sand, and some fault lines exist. If the problem isn't solved, the sand will keep eroding, affecting a few fault lines that end up causing more gullies. This is affecting people's land and eating the ground away. Also, the lorries used to harvest the sand are destroying the roads in the area, causing dust to affect vulnerable people living there, such as children and older people.
