I love plus it is something that KURA and the National highways authority can be interested in. A case last week : https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001280221/murang-a-county-officer-waithaka-dies-after-his-vehicle-hits-guard-rail-photos ..

Thanks Tabea , We looking at how children in the region gain knowledge on why resources need to be taken care of. Especially Animals, often then most poor and vulnerable are left with natural resources to exploit as a last option to survival. With the change of time and demographics we an strain on this resources often means we re-educate and became custodians of this fragile ecosystems. We looking at tool to get learners on-boarded on this mindsets at forming years and be able to reflect on this in the most friendly and clear of ways .. through play.
