Kisii County Government will on Monday 13 partner with schools and any other interested parties to plant trees as one of the ways of preserving the environment and fighting the ravages of climate change.

The assurance was made by the County Executive Committee Member (CECM) in charge of the environment and natural resources Leah Ogega when she met officials from Fairmount International School.

“We aspire to incorporate all stakeholders from both public and private sectors to make the tree planting on Monday a big success,” she said.

She termed her meeting with the officials from the school as productive and engaging as the team unveiled their elaborate plans to work with the government to reach the national target of 15 billion trees in four years.

She said the spirit of tree planting as individual institutions started at Cardinal Otunga Mosocho High School last year and has now spread to other schools.

“Walk around and see what your neighbours are doing and borrow a leaf to salvage Mother Nature from dying through global warming,” she challenged, appealing to

residents to turn up in big numbers for the exercise.
