Plant a Tree
While we were visiting in this Maasai village, we planned to plant trees. In order to do this, we needed to purchase a lot of 20 trees. When we arrived, the people (evidently) did not know that we were planning to plant trees and so, with one or two shovels, we helped/watched 20 holes get dug. Then we planted our trees, filled in the holes and watered them. The gentleman pictured is between 65 and 70 (they really weren't sure) and he single handedly dug most of the holes to plant the trees. Impressive..to say the least.
