The University therefore has embarked on an ambitious plan to plant one million trees in the kibwezi , Mtito Andei area . The University also felt it can play a role in dry land re-afforsetation of the region and cacome up with a model that can be utilised in other dry land counties .
We aim to plant trees in:
- Water catchment areas around the Chyulu Hills , and along river banks
- Public primary, secondary schools and other tertiary education institutions
- Government offices and markets
- Government and national parks or reserves
- Villages and homes
The University plans to hold the inaugural ‘One million trees’ Marathon at its main campus in Mtito Andei on 26th March 2023 . The marathon shall be held once every year and targets to raise funds for 200,000 tree seedlings . The marathon shall run for 5 years until the target of 1 million trees is met.
