UCC joins NCCK in environmental conservation

The United Church of Canada (UCC) team currently in Kenya joined the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) in planting trees at Marimanti, Tharaka Nithi County.

UCC’s Wendy Gicheru and Thivan Hoang joined NCCK’s Chief of Party Susie Ibutu, in the exercise which is part of the ongoing agroforestry efforts under the Conservation Agriculture project. The tree planting also contributed to the push by the government to plant 15 billion trees by 2032.

The event held at the Methodist Church of Kenya, also drew participation by officers from the national government who included Assistant County Commissioners of Tharaka Central Jessie Ngigi, Nkondi’s Duncan Ngare, Turima’s Milka Thauri, and Rev. Jonathan Musyimi of MCK Marimanti Circuit, Tharaka Synod.

Last week, the government announced a public holiday dubbed national tree planting day as part of its initiative to plant 15bn trees by 2032 in a bid to tackle the climate crisis and deforestation.

NCCK has partnered with UCC to champion environmental conservation by empowering farmers in Tharaka Nithi County to adopt Conservation Agriculture and agroforestry in a bid to mitigate the effects of climate change.
