Over 1000 students of Butula Boys High School joined the teachers and support staff in planting over 1000 trees to promote peace in the school and the whole county.
The school Principal Daniel Ouma who led the students in the tree planting exercise through Amani Club said peace was paramount in the implementation of programs.
” Students are embracing peace by participating in debates for peace, planting trees and promoting peaceful co-existence with the local community,” he said.
He said they have also held common barazas with students during guiding and counseling and introduced suggestion box where students talk to us and we respond to some of their concerns.
Amani peace club patron Moses Olaka said Butula Boys have embrace peace by engaging in peace debates to emerge champions in Western Region, adding that the team will represent the region in the national peace competition in Nakuru.
” We want the County Government to embrace Amani Club and the entire Busia County to embrace tree planting,” he said, adding that peace starts with us.
Ken Kimani from Amani Club National Office encouraged students to co-exist harmoniously both at school and at home. He urged them to plant more trees to make Butula a green city.
