What is the Greenbelt Movement?
A quote from Maathai: "A tree has a personality." She believes trees can give people hope; They can encourage people to make better decisions.
Maathai’s group plants seedlings in little bags so they can then plant them in larger areas such as reforestation places around Kenya. But if you decide to help by planting a tree in your backyard, that is good, too. The Green Belt Movement is an organization that anyone can help with. Start by planting a tree.
Who was Wangari Maathai?
Not only was Maathai an environmentalist, but she was also a feminist. She had faith in women, and believed they were just as great as men, if not greater. In 2004, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Wangari Maathai was a truly great woman.
