In the Biggest Family in the World, we believe that we are responsible for making our environment better than we found it. We undertake tree planting as an integral part of the rehabilitation of the thousands of children under our care and protection. In the last three decades, we have collaborated with various stakeholders; community schools, local and international colleges, universities and organizations, individual persons and families, Kenya Defense Forces, and Kenya wildlife, among other Kenyan Government officers, in our “Adopt A Tree Campaign.” The success of this campaign is notable as we have planted approximately 20 million trees in MCF campuses and all different regions of our country Kenya.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, our efforts to plant trees with our partners have been hampered in the last two years. However, that did not deter us from advancing our agenda internally as a family. At the close of April 2022, MCF donated tree seedlings to the Kenya Wildlife Society in their quest to reforest Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park, which is approximately 50 kilometers from MCF Ndalani. Our beneficiaries, together with our co-workers, joined in this venture.
Please continue to pray that doors will be opened to resume the “Adopt A Tree Campaign” in the 62 community schools we work with this year. We are mindful of the God-given mandate that He gave us regarding the earth to take care of it, cultivate it, guard it, and keep it.
Genesis 2:15 (AMPC)
And the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and guard and keep it.
Numbers 35:33-34 (AMPC)
So you shall not pollute the land in which you live; …  And you shall not defile the land in which you live, in the midst of which I dwell, for I, the Lord, dwell in the midst of the people of Israel. (emphasis mine)
