On Monday 19 August the last group of children were brought into the forest using funding from the Kilifi Gold Triathlon 2018. Fifty-six children and two teachers from one of the Gede church compassion groups came into the forest to learn about the importance of the forest and its many unique features.
A total of 1376 children have attended from 37 schools. All those that have attended were asked to participate in a competition for the best drawing or essay, with a prize to the student and a certificate to the school and teacher. The latest submissions are being collected and a winner will be announced shortly.
