Tree Planting with students at Ibba


Teacher Yoane Kumbonyaki has been planting trees around the school grounds, with the help of the students at Ibba Girls Boarding School. Practising practical afforestation can establish a stand of trees in an area which saw no tree cover previously.

Yoane has also quoted the late Philemon Ndawa, with one of the school's mottos - "a pen and a hoe, that is the future." This indeed shows a very practical outworking of this important concept. The students have also learned that if one tree is cut down, it should be replaced with at least three more trees.
