Carol van Gelder - Miano, (WorldLife Foundation) - I first heard this story narrated by the late Professor and Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai. She told this story in Canada while addressing international educators who had gathered in Montreal. We would like to share this story in her loving memory.

The story of the hummingbird
One day a terrible fire broke out in a forest - huge woodlands were suddenly engulfed by a raging wild fire. Frightened, all the animals fled their homes and ran out of the forest. As they came to the edge of a stream they stopped to watch the fire and they were feeling very discouraged and powerless. They were all bemoaning the destruction of their homes. Every one of them thought there was nothing they could do about the fire, except for one little hummingbird. Carol van Gelder - Miano


Margrethe van Heeswijk, (WorldLife Foundation) - WorldLife initiated the reforestation project in Naivasha Kenya in November of 2011. The weather conditions then were unbearable. This because of the fact that it was extremely hot, dry and dusty.

Together with the team, we experienced an extreme heat wave. Today I still very clearly remember that the team and I drove to the most southern part of Naivasha only rocks and sand in sight. Try to imagine, enormous heat, dust and the hot sun burning in your face.

After a 3 hour drive through this area we arrived at the primary school where we would plant the indigenous trees. We started planting these trees, by means of the waterboxx. Margrethe van Heeswijk

A proven success in project Ndabibi Primary school
In Kenya, the months of December to February usually are very hot, dusty and windy. This has even become worse with the ravages of climate change. In areas such as Naivasha this is even more severe.

Success starts with good governance and investing partners
Private support to international development and humanitarian assistance has become increasingly important in recent years.

Hanneke Schavemaker, (Universiteit Wageningen) - I had heard about deforestation before I visited Kenya. I had seen documentaries and I even had read articles about it. I have known exact numbers, figures and locations of deforestation, but I did not feel responsible for it.

I considered deforestation as a huge, intangible issue that was taking place somewhere far away and definitely not in my backyard. So why should I feel responsible for it anyway? This was my feeling before I experienced the impact of deforestation with all my senses. Green Kenya
