Shirlyne Janet Mboya
Director, Children With Nature

I have always loved nature since I was a little girl. My inspiration is and continues to be my father who has over time transformed our farm into a green haven. My family and I have planted over 3,000 trees. My Junior school final year project was on climate change and its effects on the environment and the human population. My take home and life time resolve is to continue coloring our planet green, every tree counts.
