In Uganda this audacious task is being built around children, who, according to various environmental activists, are the custodians of planet earth.
To spread the gospel further, Kampala International School Uganda (KISU) last month, Saturday 22nd April, at their school campus joined the rest of the world to celebrate Earth Day, a global movement championing conservation of a green environment.
The daylong celebration was spear headed by My Kid is A superstar and Uganda's Little hands Go Green who organized the 4th annual International Children Climate Change Conference. The conference under the theme ‘Environmental and climate Literacy’ attracted four schools from Kigali, Rwanda.
