As a motherly figure, Pastor Dorcas encouraged the students, referring to them as the future caretakers of the environment. She highlighted the importance of taking responsibility for the future, envisioning a world where their children would thrive in a healthy environment.

Pastor Dorcas recognized that some of the challenges related to climate change stem from past negligence towards the environment. In her efforts to promote environmental consciousness, she has been touring various institutions of higher learning, including Chuka University and Masai Mara University, engaging in both tree planting activities and discussions with students.

Beyond environmental concerns, Pastor Dorcas addressed the issue of drug and substance abuse among students, emphasizing the national crisis it has become. She urged the students to prioritize their studies for a brighter future.

Bomet Governor Dr. Hillary Barchok echoed the call for proactive measures against climate change, urging students to brainstorm and implement additional strategies to mitigate its effects.
