Farmers in Kitui and Makueni receive 4.5 million shillings for environmental protection

Reconcile Project Manager, Beatrice Mutua, appealed to Green for Jobs beneficiaries to make the most of the support to increase their income through environmental protection activities.

“We want you to develop trainers of trainers and model farmers in your communities as champions in the fight against climate change.

“Climate change is here and we must work hard to mitigate its effects,” she said.

One of the beneficiaries was renowned Makueni environmentalist, Kyee Mbatha, popularly known as Captain Green.

Mbatha said the equipment has been an injection of energy into his conservation work.

“I promise that in the next five months, I will be a reliable producer of tree seedlings. I will sell my seedlings at a reasonable price to enable many people to buy to support environmental protection because I love it,” he promised.

Captain Green said the Earth is warming at an alarming rate and there is global consensus to keep the rate of warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Excess heat would be disastrous for the human race.

“If warming continues, many children will be born with disabilities and many mothers will have serious complications during childbirth,” he warned.
