Patricia commented on Elephants, Rhinos, People (ERP)

Curious whether the communities you work with are very keen on the beehive fences. In Kenya the communities are afraid of bees so don't even harvest the honey from the hives. And the agricultural projects are such a long-term intervention that it doesn't alleviate the short-term needs that poverty always brings.

Patricia commented on Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest

This made me think of the Olympic Games. The global community rallies around the Olympics every 4 years so why not rally around the Compassion Games every year?

Patricia commented on Tree-hugging tires

Thanks for the query, Ashley. Our goals for the next 1-2 years are: 1) plant & protect no less than 10 new trees at each homestead in our region using the discarded tires in their yards, 2) sensitize the community members to our project for increased participation from volunteers, business owners, politicians, church leaders, and tribal chiefs 3) monitor the survival rates of the planted trees to ensure project efficacy, 4) publicize to & educate a broader audience beyond our region, especially sharing the results with traditional tree-planting organizations and the communities tasked with protecting reforestation initiatives.
