The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

In Ukam­bani, Nyakach and other re­gions, KenGen con­tin­ues to plant trees in schools and other pub­lic places, an ini­tia­tive started in 2010. KenGen has also con­nected wa­ter pipes to dry ar­eas of the Eastern region, which has helped save peo­ple’s time . Now they don’t walk long dis­tances to fetch wa­ter. The val­ues that KenGen is bring­ing to Kenya’s de­vel­op­ment are not only en­ergy, but also ed­u­ca­tion em­pow­er­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion. These are the most ef­fec­tive chan­nels to build­ing a strong na­tion by chang­ing the mind­set of peo­ple to­wards con­ser­va­tion.
