Makini Schools are environmentally friendly spaces, providing serene environments for students to learn. As a school, the learning atmosphere is a contributor to the students ability to concentrate and their sense of social responsibility for their surroundings.
This is overlooked by the Environment Club which has taken on a number of initiatives from tree-planting to cleaning the Kirichwa River which divides the Lower and Upper section of Makini School’s mother campus. The club innovates projects for exhibits on themes of sustainable development among others. Makini is by merit recognized as part of the Eco School organization and is additionally the first Green Apple School in East Africa, making us an ambassador for the conservation of our environment.
In one particular case, Stephen Njoroge, a former student of Makini who later become a UNEP youth activist, began his initiative while in Makini. While here he formed the We Care Club which advocated that each student should plant as many trees as their age.
Currently the Environment Club is running the Litter-Less Campaign which plans to reduce litter and improve waste management by sensitizing learners on the importance of a litter free environment and how they can reuse and recycle litter to create more valuable items.
