Milton Oboka and Arnold Bosire, Greening The Mind

Migori, Kenya is home to 817 primary schools and 207 secondary schools, with an accumulated enrollment of over 250,000 pupils that represent 24% of the district’s population. Migori also has below one percent of forest coverage and Milton Oboka and Arnold Bosire are working towards developing environmental ambassadors that can advocate for wetland conservation through their project, Greening The Mind. The program will work with schools to plant 100,000 trees, form active environmental clubs, mentor environmental champions and advise schools to adopt policies leading to waste management and energy and water conservation.
