The Peace Garden @ Shalom School in Molo has faced ups and downs in weather since we first planted last year (2016). First, the floods. Now, Kenya is experiencing ongoing, serious drought (since September 2016). Local communities have really been struggling with high food prices – and very few equal paying jobs.
My favourite donkey…is hot, dry and hungry. Try to look this donkey in the eye, and explain climate change! How is it happening? What are the root causes? Are the problems science based – or culturally caused? I think Pope Francis has some honest answers, when he speaks of climate change as a problem – primarly for the poor. In Kenya I see how the high percentage of extreme rural poverty in the global south, is rooted in the heart of the global rich.
What is in your heart?
