The Environment and Service Program (EaSP) aims at mitigating the effects of climate change, global warming and enhance food security through advocating and leading in the implementation of green economy service-based learning initiatives using Education for Sustainable Development Model and Virtue Development Initiatives.
Over the years, the exploitation of natural resources such as forests, rivers, lakes and including poor garbage disposal and pollution have resulted to numerous negative health hazards. To counter this negative trend, the Centre for Character and Leadership seeks to inspire and support the achievement of 10% forest cover through cultivation of green economy projects in alignment with Kenya’s Vision 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Driven by the motto ‘Our Community, Our Responsibility;’ and inspired by the desire to make a positive difference; youth and students from diverse communities and learning institutions are mobilized to undertake community service projects. This includes growing of indigenous trees, fruit trees, establishment of green kitchen gardens and green corners. These initiatives are meant to go a long way towards conserving environment and enhancing food security for our future generations.
You cannot protect the environment unless you empower people, you inform them, and you help them understand that these resources are their own, that they must protect them.
