The one that started it all. In 2012 Tracey & Simon got married, and as second-time-arounders they didn’t need another toaster or set of bath towels, so instead they asked their friends and family to plant trees for them.
This young man is Kelvin Tsuma, he was 8 years old when this picture was taken and he’s stood in front of one of the classrooms we built.
Tracey & Simon’s trees were planted near Kelvin’s school, Kundeni Primary, in Boré, Coast Province, Kenya.
His school friends and the local villagers will take care of them and ensure they grow tall and strong.
In a handful of years, the commodities from the trees will provide the community with medicines, food, building poles and water purifiers, and they’ll also help to lift the community out of poverty
Thank you making a difference to their lives and the planet too.
