Care of Creation

Region:

Africa

Country:

Kenya

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. John Waldrep, M.M.

The reforestation project will take place in 20-30 outstations of St. John the Baptist Parish. Two types of drought-resistant trees will be planted. The trees will bring various nutritional and socio-economic benefits to the local population. The second part of this proposal is for a solar pump for a well in St. John the Baptist Parish. In 2015, the Society funded the drilling of a well in the Parish. That well is now the main water source for the surrounding community. Fossil fuels are used to power the pump. Shifting to a solar pump will protect the environment and relieve the community of the costs entailed by purchasing diesel. If the trees survive, the tree project will become self-sustaining. The well has already been a self-sustaining project. The solar pump will enhance the well’s durability.

This care of creation project is for sustainable trees in the semi-arid area of Kibwezi in southeastern Kenya and a solar pump for a well. The Moringa Oleifera tree can provide a source of nutrition to community members, especially during the dry seasons, and the use of a solar pump will eliminate the need for fossil fuels to power the power.

Your gifts enables Brother John Beeching, M.M., to provide English-language training for approximately 33 Thai Students and 62 student monks (from Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar). The purpose of the program is to provide English as a job skill for poor Thai students and for some retired Thais and it provides English training for student monks studying in high school or university.

This training also provides a wonderful opportunity for Maryknoll volunteers and affiliates to serve overseas in a unique interfaith experience.

In conjunction with Maryknoll Society’s ecological Chapter initiative and Mission Goals, this endeavor will seek to expand its research, publication and presentation work to encompass our mission areas of Latin America, Africa and Asia, with a certain priority to assist regional Missions and the various Conferences of Bishops to effectively engage in climate change resolution with the principles promulgated in Laudato Si’, and with particular relevance to efforts coincident with resolutions of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change and other relevant conferences.

Your generosity will help to enhance the Universal Church’s efforts to protect the poor and most vulnerable from the most dangerous effects of climate change.
