I Will Be A Hummingbird
In 2004 Wangari Maathai won the Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution to sustainable development, democracy and peace. Maathai was from Kenya and just like the hummingbird in the video, she did her best.
In 1977 Wangai Maathai planted seven trees on Earth Day as a way to honour Kenyan women environmental leaders. Maathai believed that deforestation could be reversed if village women in Kenya became tree planters themselves. By doing this she launched the Green Belt Movement. She was laughed at for doing this, as many people thought that trained foresters were needed to successfully plant trees, but she would not give up and carried on with her work. Now, because of Wangari Maathai, village women Kenya planted 15 million trees. In a recent article in the Guardian, Prince Charles explains why he admired and loved Wangari Maathai.
Wangari Maathai had aspiration and she took action.
