THE STORY:

Over recent years, Kenya has borne the brunt of drastic climatic change, mainly caused by wanton destruction of our water catchments areas and forests. Aberdare forests are important catchment areas that require protection and rehabilitation. Together with the Mt.Kenya, Mau, Cherangany and Mt. Elgon Forests, they supply water to almost all major rivers in Kenya. Despite this, there has been increased destruction of these forests through deforestation, charcoal burning, quarrying, and discharging of industrial and farm wastes into the environment. Environmental impact assessment studies carried out by our organization reveal that there is massive destruction still going on. Without our forests and with a high rise in population densities, there is little hope of Kenya ever solving its major wealth and health issues. As forests continue to be destroyed, we will continue to face food security and health issues. There is an urgent need to make interventions to conserve forested regions - known locally as 'water towers' - by actively involving the local communities in taking responsibility and stewardship in the management and monitoring of natural resources and ecosystems. There is dire need to create awareness on environmental issues and encourage best environmental practices. Comminities and neighbourhoods must be made aware of destructive environmental practices. Kiangure Springs Environment Initiative, a Community based organisation Working to save the Aberdare forest has initiated this project in an effort to empower the Young Generation to become the Guardians of Tomorrow through Mural art.
