Today, one of the Panua staff members shared the story of the environmental activist Wangari Maathai. It’s a children’s story about a terrible fire that took place on an island. All the animals stood in awe watching their homes burn to the earth. A small hummingbird decided to get some water and try to put the fire out. All the animals questioned why the hummingbird would try to put out the fire. The hummingbird said I may be small, but I can’t give up like the other animals. I have to try the best I can.
We are so inspired by the difference Panua is making in the lives of the Youth and the community of Naivasha. They are taking all they are learning in the program and making their communities better!
