Environment Day with Youth for Life - Kenya at Athi River

Rosemary, in one of AYICC Kenya meetings
On the 14th may 2011 AYICC-Kenya members had an opportunity to visit the Youth For Life Kenya, a youth group based in Athi River for environmental awareness day.
The theme of the Day was Mobilizing the youth for Environmental Management.
There was a good representation of the AYICC Education and Outreach Team led by Njeri Kuria (Environmental Education Specialist), Richard Omondi (AYICC Kenya Ass. Programmes Coordinator), Alpha Gitau (NYCC IV Convenor), Anthony Ogolla (KUNEC Secretary General) and Rosemary Wangechi (AYICC Kenya Communications Officer). Over 25 youth from the group were present to listen to us.
The first presentation was on Waste management which Njeri took us through this session. It was very interactive, lively and also many questions were thrown to her. She taught on the principle of management of waste and emphasized on the reduction of waste production and generation into the environment.
At the end of this session, the youths were asked to write down what they had learnt,observed and had liked most from presentation. These writtings were put on a democracy wall and later discussed.
Richard re-energized the group with a very interesting ice breaker and Second Session, where everyone atleast knew their county natural resources and challenges. When a question was asked about the county which most of its water sources were degraded, Kisumu county in Nyanza got the most votes. Next quiz was on the county with highest deforestation rates and Lamu led in Coast was voted. Next was a question on the county with the highest population and Nairobi county was the answer. Next question was county with degraded environment and the emerging county was Nairobi highlilighting the degradation of Nairobi River and Dandora dumpsite.
The last session was by Alpha Gitau who explained to the participants about AYICC, their activities on climate change and how they can become part of the movement.
We are glad that this was a succesful event!!!
The team plans to invite us in future, and as well, we have invited them to join us.
