http://www.nation.co.ke Environmental degradation is a major concern to humanity. This has resulted in Global warming and rapid desertification. But a 17 year old girl has embarked on a mission that might help reverse the trend and safeguard livelihoods for future generations. In what seems like tracing the footsteps of the late environmentalist Prof Wangare Maathai, Lily Moimet recently won a two-week scholarship to join Young Global Scholars at the prestigious Yale University in the United States after she wrote an essay on sustainable energy solutions. Gabriel Kudaka traced the young environmentalist from her home in Saroyot village in Eldoret to her school in Bunyore Girls.
