ENGAGEMENT WITH VILLAGE ELDERSJune 7, 2023
On 1/7/2023 Green circle Foundation joined the President H.E William Ruto and Deputy Rigathi Gachagua in a tree planting exercise at Kaptagat Forest.
The Kaptagat Forest Ecosystem is a critical catchment area supporting thousands of livelihoods in Elgeyo Marakwet, Trans-Nzoia and Uasin Gishu Counties. It not only supplies water for irrigation and domestic use but also offers the right training environment for our thriving sportsmen and women. We undertake to work with partners to rehabilitate and restore this key ecosystem.
To ensure a holistic approach to water resources management and catchment restoration, we should foster strong collaboration with all it agencies to make sure that our resources are well conserved and managed.
We must address the root causes of deforestation, soil erosion, and unsustainable land use practices through robust policy implementation, community engagement, and environmental education.
