Lesson Taught
how to plant 
Abraham met sixteen Buluvu community members and they were supposed to plant trees but the chairman called Abraham that there is one member who want to plant all the three hundred trees. Abraham arranged with the chairman to meet and working as a group not individuals. They discussed why all have to participate in the program because if one person plants the trees others will not see it good they may even go at night and cut them that is why we want all to be involved. Even if that member is capable of doing but Kibo wants a group of members, for example we want to fight climate change and if all people are involved we shall make a change but if it is one person it may not change much. The chairman Mr Bumali said that all members should be involved even if the person who wants the trees has bigger land but as all needs to participate. They moved checking some members how they dug the holes and found some did not follow the instructions of from a tree to another has to be thirty meters which is night feet but some were making ten meters which is not recommended, they advised them to do the recommended distance which is thirty meters. They moved to a church and the school where Abraham advised them to plant at one trees. They agreed to that they are going to divide the trees among the members and they said the list will be ready by Friday. The chairperson said that that by Monday next week they will be ready for planting trees.
