GREEN BELT MOVEMENT CLUB
GREEN BELT MOVEMENT CLUB.
Kabura Ulwan Free Methodist School has a club for conserving the environment known as Green Belt Movement. The school’s green belt movement club was introduced into the school in the year 2006 by the Kenya National Green Belt Movement through their Agents.
The aim was to make the school community, covered by trees that each school pupil carried from the school’s tree seedlings nursery. The school encouraged the school pupils to each collect and gather the local original tree seeds into the school. The school’s green belt movement club germinated these seeds into tree seedlings in their school tree seedling nursery ready for transplanting. The school club tree seedling nursery gave each pupil a tree seedling which they planted at their homes in the school’s local community. The Kenya National Green Belt Movement in collaboration with the school; monitored the growth of these seedlings into firm plants.
In this way they ensured that the school’s local community was covered by trees making the environment look green; which in turn enhanced the rate of evapotranspiration from the hydrological cycle and atmospheric water vapour thus hope for consistent rain.
The school’s green belt movement club also aims at producing from pupils, responsible citizens who can greatly contribute to the environment conservation. Mr.Abol Patrice is the teacher in-charge.
