DAPP Private School has received a donation of 30 seedlings of mangoes and lemons from David Mwaetako, a community member and a newly appointed school board member.
During the handover ceremony that took place at the school premises, Mwaetako urged the school to take care of the plants, enjoy the fruits as well as to raise funds for future school needs.
He highlighted that the idea came about when the principal during a school board meeting requested that there was a need to start a project on education for sustainable development that would focus on gardening and greening.
“I have worked for the Ministry of Agriculture and that made me fall in love with plants and that pushed me to donate plants to kick start the project” says David.
The donation is important to the school as it serves as a living laboratory to educate children about the importance of tress in the environment and how to take care of them.
