Page 6 Inside: ENGLISH VERSION 2 When farmers get together in Small Groups of 6-12, they get trained and informed about TIST activities, including participating in carbon business, before formally joining TIST. After series of Cluster meetings, training and sharing of information, they then decide whether or not to join TIST. If they decide to join TIST, they sign a Greenhouse Gas Agreement with Clean Air Action Corporation (CAAC), a company that manages the carbon credit quantification, Verification, and sales on behalf of the farmers. TIST participants begin to plant trees around our houses, farms, streams, schools, roads and churches. These trees provide shade, reduce erosion, improve biodiversity, enrich the soil, and encourage the growth of native shrubs and grasses. 

Moreover, trees produce edible fruit, traditional medicines, fodder for our cattle, firewood and building materials. As trees grow, photosynthesis takes carbon dioxide out of the air and stores it in the wood, roots and soil. Properly measured, monitored and verified, our trees create “carbon credits,” a new cash crop for our farms. Clean Air Action buys the carbon reductions from our activities, takes all the actions necessary to make them into carbon credits and then sells them on the world market. Right now, because of the community benefits, and the biodiversity benefits, the TIST credits are considered among the best in the world.TIST participants get a carbon pre-payment every year and will also receive 70% of the net profits from the sale of the carbon credits. Today, we are happy to announce that out of 6,075,831 trees planted by TIST Farmers and still alive in Kenya, counted and quantified, 5,023,271 have been verified and their tonnes certified.They have generated 360,978 net tonnes of carbon so far. Each year more tonnes will be sequestered by the trees.A total of 188,249 carbon tonnes have already been sold and remaining 172,729 tonnes are being marketed. The proceeds /revenue from the sold tonnes went to offset a pre-sale debt that CAAC had committed to, in order to get funds to start TIST and give advance payments to farmers. We wish to inform farmers that CAAC is committed to looking for best markets for best prices for their carbon. As soon as all program expenses as stipulated in the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) contract are met, CAAC will begin to share net profits to the farmers (70% share to the farmers). Let’s remember, the small incentive of Ksh 1.50 (now about Ksh 1.7) for each live tree planted and kept alive is paid at a time when the trees are so small they have little “carbon credit” value. We know that the biodiversity, firewood, food and fodder value of the trees and their other benefits are significantly higher. If we are organized and motivated, we can accumulate enough money over the years to invest in other income generating projects. It is only when the trees mature, the greenhouse gas value will be more significant and we will receive 70% of the net profits. Also, remember, trees on the farm remain the property of the farmer. TIST Small Groups that plant in the protected areas, such as the gazetted forests, will share the carbon profits with KFS and the local CFA.The trees in the forests are owned by KFS for the nation. TIST Farmers can get full information of their individual tree record and numbers from TIST Cluster Servants (Quantifiers) at their Cluster Meetings. Every TIST Servant has been provided with a TIST Smart phone that has a TIST Customized mobile website that makes it possible to access individual Small Group information easily and at Cluster meetings. Besides sale of Carbon credits, TIST also develops and shares information about improved agriculture, biodiversity conservation, forestry, health (including HIV/AIDS) and sustainable development activities and TIST is organized to make this useful information available to all of the Small Groups. We have newsletters, monthly local cluster meetings and regional seminars where we share the best practices we have developed. Other benefits of being in TIST include;

 • Stipend pre-payment for live trees 

• Improved crop yield from Conservation Farming 

• Improved biodiversity on farm and in protected areas 

• Building local capacity in technology use, training and organization 

• Agro forestry knowledge

 • New friends

 • Leadership and management skills 

• Opportunities for service to others

 • Profit sharing agreement Good News For TIST Farmers: We have been Validated and Verified again! ENGLISH VERSION 3 M ost TIST Small Groups appreciate and practice TIST Values.The success of TIST is based on the integrity and effort of individual members. Our achievements are largely guided by each one of us keenly abiding by these Values. In many of our activities, from tree planting, practicing Conservation Farming, improving biodiversity, Building or buying improved stoves, teaching and practicing important health issues, protecting our lands against soil erosion and other degradation causes, fighting climate changes and deforestation, protection our rivers for clean and adequate water and many others activities including income generating,TIST Values play a central role. In TIST, We Are. We are Honest; We are Accurate; We are Transparent; We are Servant to each other; We are Mutually Accountable; We are Role Models; We are Volunteers. What is an indigenous tree? An indigenous, or native tree is one that is well adapted to an area because it has grown and reproduced naturally there over a long period of time. Not all species that are familiar to us are indigenous. Many have been introduced by people in areas far away. There are over 800 species of trees that are indigenous in Kenya. Why are indigenous trees important? Because indigenous trees have evolved with the local environment, animals, plants, and other organisms around them they are well suited to the area. They often require less maintenance than exotic, introduced species.They diversify our farms, so that risks of pest outbreaks can be lower. They provide biodiversity benefits such as habitat for wildlife and diverse benefits for us from their fruits, timber leaves, and traditional medicine. Introduced, or exotic species, can provide many benefits, but some can become weedy and crowd out other trees or crops. When we plant indigenous trees on our farms, we are helping preserve species that have been useful to our mothers and fathers, to our grandparents, and to the people and wildlife of Kenya for generations. We are still learning about benefit of the many species around us. We have discovered that some are as fast growing as the exotic species. When we plant indigenous species, we can help ensure that the trees and their benefits are there for our children. In TIST, we have some additional biodiversity incentives for planting indigenous tree species. Groups near rivers, who follow TIST’s Best Practice for Riparian areas and plant indigenous trees, may qualify to receive an additional incentive through the TIST Riparian Corridor initiative. By having diverse indigenous species along the streams and rivers, other insects, birds and animals will have the ability to move and flourish. TIST Small Groups near protected forests, who plant indigenous trees, may be eligible to join CFA groups near them, to plant indigenous species and earn carbon income in these forests. Here are some of indigenous trees for Kenya; 1. Muringa (Cordia Africana) 2. Meru oak-muhuru (vitex keniensis) 3. Mugumo, murumba (ficus thonningii) 4. Podo, muthengera (podocarpus falcatus) 5. Mwiria (prunus africana) 6. Mutoo, Mukeu,(Dombeya rotundifolia). 7. Muuti (erythrina abyssinica) 8. Muuuku, (terminalia brownii) Try planting some indigenous tree in your shamba this rainy season! TIST VALUES: The Foundation and Strength of TIST. 

By Joseph Gituma Indigenous Tree Species Have Multiple Benefits. ENGLISH VERSION 4 L ast month, Wamura Cluster, through their Cluster Leader, Mr. Charles Ng’anga, bought ten (10) Envirofit stoves. These are TIST’s manufactured energy saving stoves. Charles volunteered to collect money from interested members, sent the cash through MPesa to Dorothy Naitore (the KitiMoto) in Meru. Luckily, one of the members from Wamura Cluster was attending a seminar in Gitoro. He was sent to deliver the ordered stoves to Wamura Cluster. We encourage other Clusters to do the same. We will offer discounts to such similar arrangements. Here are varieties of manufactured energy saving jikos TIST is selling, to both TIST members and NonTIST members, at subsidized prices. We Are Servant To Each Other: Wamura Cluster Leader is a good Role Model. By Dorothy Naitore Deforestation is the removal of trees and other woody vegetation cover. Forests and woodlands cover about a third of the world’s land surface. They regulate climate, protect water resources, provide forest products (e.g. timber, medicine, fruit etc) worth billions of dollars and support millions of plant and animal species. Yet they are being destroyed at a rate of 20 million hectares per year. Half of the world’s population depends on these forests for fuel, yet roughly 100 million people do not have enough fuel for minimal energy requirements. Major causes of deforestation: Deforestation occurs when vegetation is cleared for activities like farming or grazing and uses such as: firewood, brick-making, fish smoking, tobacco-curing, tea-drying, construction, and timber. Forest degradation is when a forest becomes less diverse and resilient due to poor use and management (for example, when old trees are all cut, leaving mainly brush, or when a useful plant species is all harvested, or when forest is heavily grazed, so that trees can’t grow to replace those that die). Much of deforestation and forest land degradation results from a lack of awareness of the full value of trees. In some cases, the value of trees may be known but poverty and the idea that there are no good alternatives lead people to clear trees. Consequences of Deforestation. Soil erosion: lack of tree cover and root binding exposes soil to erosion. Lack of forest resources: removing trees destroys habitats, reduces biodiversity, removes food and medicinal resources, and increases competition for construction materials. People will have to walk further for firewood, and if forest products are being bought, prices will rise. Lack of other environmental benefits of trees: Trees act as a windbreak, retain moisture, add oxygen to the air, and add nutrients to soil. Hence without trees the local climate will become drier with increased risk of flooding, wind erosion, decreasing soil fertility and diminished air quality. What can we do to prevent deforestation and forest degradation? Establish tree nurseries of diverse and indigenous trees and plant them yourself, or distribute or sell seedlings to the community. Use energy-saving cook stoves that use less firewood and charcoal. Use alternative sources of energy and fuel when possible (e.g. heating from the sun, sawdust, coffee and risk husks, grass, weeds, crop wastes, animal waste). Carry out tree planting activities. Become a successful, effective TIST group! Encourage your neighbors and friends to join TIST as well. Deforestation and forest land degradation are serious problems.What can we do? Envirofit G-3300: 2,500 ksh Envirofit 2-pot/ chimney attachment (to be used with G-3300): 1,200 ksh ENGLISH VERSION 5 T IST groups do a lot of practical activities: Planting trees and improving agricultural techniques.When there is a lot of work to be done, it is good to create action steps. Each group member should tell the group what they are going to achieve that week. We are going to teach you and your Small Group how to do action planning. Please share this with other members of your Small Group during your meeting. An action step is something that is: 

• Specific 

• Observable (a fly on the wall can see you do it!) 

• Measurable

 • Has a beginning and an end 

• Make sure your action step is realistic and that you can achieve it! For example, saying ‘I will plant trees’ is not an action step because it is too general.‘I will work on three mornings this week to transplant 75 seedlings into our new grove’ is an action step because it is specific (transplant 75 seedlings), observable (people can see you do it), measurable (75 seedlings, 3 mornings) and has a beginning and an end (at the end of three days you can see the results). When your group meets again, allow ten minutes near the end of the small group meeting for each person to report on his or her action step. Each person quickly: (1) Tells the group what their action step was for the past week. (2) States what they actually did. (3) States what action step they will take for the following week. If the person succeeded in his or her action step, the group celebrates the success. If, as often happens to start with, the group member met only part of his goal, the group encourages him / her and does not criticize or blame. When people are able to freely share their successes and failures they will be encouraged to do better each week.Encourage your Small Group members to think of possible action steps. Make sure each is specific, measurable and realistic! Share and celebrate the action steps that your Small Group has accomplished. Action Steps for Action Planning. A similar method can be used when planning. Here an example is given in brackets.When your group is planning what to do, make sure your plans are: Specific (Our TIST Small Group will plant 1000 trees at the local hospital by November 30) Measurable (How many? - 1000 trees will be planted) Achievable/Realistic (Our TIST Small Group can plant 1000 trees in 5wks – 100 trees per Tuesday and Thursday, 10 trees per person/per day) Time-bound (Has a beginning and an end - we will plant the trees between Oct 15 to Nov 30) Observable (A fly on the wall can see us planting) SMARTO! This is the guide and test of your action steps for your plan and helps you be specific: 1) What – (Planting 1000 trees) 2) Who – (TIST Small Group members by name) 3) When – (Oct 15 – Nov 30) 4) Where – (At the hospital) 5) How – (We meet every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon after the heat of the day and dig holes, then plant the trees) 6) Why – (To improve the area around the hospital, have more shade for patients and visitors, people can sit under trees and the shade will make the hospital cooler) Now, try to practice action planning in your next Small Group meeting. Small Group Best Practices: Action Steps and Action Planning. Do not cultivate land bordering a river or swamp. Leave trees and vegetation to grow to protect these waters. Be careful to not over-graze land. 

Limit animals’ access to tree seedlings that they may destroy, to give the forest a chance to re grow. Encourage agro-forestry or the use of woodlots. Having trees on your land provides good access to forest products and helps protect nearby forest. ENGLISH VERSION 6 Weeding is important for these reasons: 1. Your crops need water, soil nutrients and light to grow strong. If there are weeds they will compete with your crops for these things.The weeds will use the soil nutrients and water that your crops need.The result is that your crops will be weaker and may not survive. 2. If your area is not weeded, more pests may be attracted to the area. Pests can damage and kill your crops. The fewer weeds there are, the less chance there will be of snakes and insects. Here are some of the advantages of weeding your fields: 

• Crops grow faster because weeds don’t take the nutrients and water from the soil.

 • Crops will become stronger and grow taller in a shorter period of time. 

• Crops can get the sunlight they need unhindered.

 • Crops are not exposed to as many diseases. 

• Crops are more protected from a fire spreading. 

• Clean fields indicate that small groups are maintaining them and are good examples of the TIST program. 

This will attract many people to come and see your work. Once you have weeded the area, make sure you remove the weeds from the field. If you leave the dead weeds by the crops they may still attract pests and diseases that can damage your crop. You may be able to use weeds in compost manure since the heat from decomposition can kills weed seeds and some diseases. Remember to keep weeding your tree groves too! We are grateful for the good rains this season, but let’s remember to weed our crops. K ujengana is a very important part of your Small Group weekly meeting. It says in Ephesians 4:15,16 that we are to build each other up into the fullness of Christ. Each person in your TIST Small Group brings his or her own special talents and gifts to the entire group. One of the wonderful things that happen in the Small Group is recognizing, sharing and using those God-given talents. Kujengana is a way to let those talents be seen and be used.There are two parts to Kujengana: • Before the closing prayer, every person in the group says one specific, positive thing that the leader did at that meeting. For example, smiled, kept to time, made good plans, encouraged all group members to speak, greeted me and made me feel welcome, pointed out something that was going very well in the meeting or in the work the group was doing, etc. Each member needs to say something different. This is not optional. Everyone gives Kujengana to the servant leader. Some groups also give Kujengana to the co-leader. •

 In addition, if someone sees a gift shown by the leader, a group member can also say that. With Rotating Leadership, each week a new leader will receive Kujengana. Through Kujengana, we encourage each other on the good things that week’s leader did in the meeting and the talents the person showed. Kujengana is also the way we learn to look for positive things about people and then say them. We all need to train our tongues to say the positive. In addition, the whole group learns what that group thinks is important in a servant leader. The next leaders will benefit from what they have heard in Kujengana about previous leaders and know what the groups think is important in being a servant leader. In response to Kujengana, that week’s servant leader just says, “Thank you.” after each group member’s specific, positive statement. There is no discussion about how it could have been done better, or differently. Often, the person is happy when he or she is told the good things he or she did during the meeting. Sometimes we learn things about ourselves we didn’t know! Kujengana helps the leader on that day recognize his or her talents and keep on using them. Kujengana also helps the Small Group because all the members improve their servant leadership as they learn. Kujengana is a double blessing! Kujengana: Don’t miss the blessing for your Small Group.

KISWAHILI VERSION 2 Wakulima wanapokuja pamoja katika vikundi vidogo vya watu sita kufika kumi na wawili, wanafunzwa na kujuzwa kuhusu vitendo vya TIST, pamoja na kuhusu kujihusisha na soko la hewa, kabla ya kujiunga rasmi na TIST. Baada ya mfululizo wa mikutano ya cluster, mafunzo na kubadilishana habari, ndipo wanapoamua iwapo watajiunga au hawatajiunga katika TIST. Iwapo wataamua kujiunga na TIST, watatia saini mkataba wa gesi chafu (GhG) pamoja na kampuni ya Clean Air Action Corporation (CAAC), kampuni inayoshughulikia uhesabu wa kaboni, ukaguzi na uuzaji kwa ajili ya wakulima. Washiriki katika TISt huanza kupanda miti kuzunguka nyumba zao, mashamba yao, mio midogo, shule, barabara na makanisa. Miti hii huwapa kivuli, hupunguza mmomonyoko wa udongo, huboresha bionuwai, huboresha udongo, na uhamasisha ukuaji wa vichaka na nyasi. Aidha, miti hutupa matunda yanayoliwa, madawa ya kienyeji, chakula cha mifugo, kuni hata na vifaa vya ujenzi. Jinsi miti inavyokua, utengenezaji wa chakula huchukua hewa ya kaboni kutoka hewani na kuiweka mtini, mizizini na udongoni. Ikipimwa, kuzingatiwa a kuhakikishwa inavyofaa, miti yetu huleta pesa kutoka kwa uuzaji wa kaboni hii, ambayo huwa mfumo wa biashara kutokana na mashamba yetu. Kampuni ya Clean Air Action hununua kaboni inayotolewa hewani kufuatia shughuli zetu, halafu kuchukua hatua inayotakikana ili kuibadilisha hii kaboni kuwa mkopo wa kaboni halafu kuiuza katika soko la ulimwengu. Saa hizi, kwa sababu ya faida za jamii, na faida za kibionuwai, mikopo hii ya TIST inachukuliwa kuwa iliyo bora kabisa duniani. Washiriki wa TIST hupata pesa za awali kila mwaka na pia watapata asilimia sabini ya faida za mwishoni baada ya uuzaji wa kaboni hii. Leo tuna furaha kutangaza kuwa kati ya miti milioni sita, sabini na tano elfu na mia nane thelathini na moja iliyopandwa na wakulima wa TIST na iliyopo hai kufikia leo katika Kenya, iliyohesabiwa na kukaguliwa, miti milioni tano, ishirini na tatu elfu na mia mbili sabini imehakikishwa na kupitishwa na tani hizi zimethibitishwa. Miti hii imeweka tani laki tatu sitini elfu, mia tisa sabini na nane kufikia hapo. Kila mwaka tani zingine zitawekwa mtini. Kaboni tani elfu mia moja themanini na nane, mia mbili arobaini na tisa, zishauzwa na zilizobakia elfu mia moja sabini na mbili, mia saba ishirini na tisa zipo sokoni. Pesa zilizotokana na tani zilizouzwa, zilielekea kulipa mkopo wa awali wa CAAC, uliochukuliwa ili kupata pesa za kuanzisha TISt na kulipa wakulima malipo ya mapema. 

Tunataka kuwajuza wakulima kuwa CAAC ina nia ya kutafutasoko bora zaidi duniani ili kupata malipo bora zaidi ya kaboni. Gharama ya muradi itakapogharamiwa, kama ilivyorejelewa katika kandarasi ya GhG, CAAC itaanza kugawana faida na wakulima (wakulima watapata asilimia sabini ) Tukumbukeni , motisha ile ndogo ya shilingi moja na cumni (sasa KSh 1.7) ya kila mti uliopndwa na kuwekwa hai hulipwa wakati miti ilipo midogo kiasi cha kuwa inaweka kaboni chache sana. Twajua kuwa thamani ya bionuwai, kuni, chakula cha watu na wanyama na faida za miti huwa juu zaidi. Tukiwa tumejipanga na tuna motisha, twaweza kuweka pesa tosha miakani za kuwekeza katika miradi mingine ya mapato. Ni tu miti inapokomaa, thamani ya gesi chafu huwa nyingi na itakapopata asilimia sabini ya faida. Pia kumbuka, miti iliyo shambani, hubaki kuwa mali ya mkulima. Vikundi vidogo vya TISt vinavopanda katika maeneo ya hifadhi, kwa mfano misitu ya serikali, watagawana faida na KFS au na CFA ya karibu. Miti iliyo misituni ni mali ya KFS au taifa. Wakulima wa TIST waweza kupata taarifa kamili kuhusu miti ya kila mmoja na nambari kutoka kwa watumishi wa cluster wa TIST (wahesabu miti) katika mikutano yao ya cluster. Kila mtumishi wa TISt amepewa simu ya TIST iliyo na tovuti ya TISt iliyotengezwa inayowezesha kupata taarifa kuhusu kila kikundi kidogo kwa urahisi na katika mikutano ya cluster. Licha ya uuzaji wa kaboni,TIST pia huanzisha na kugawana taarifa kuhusu kilimo bora, uhifadhi wa bionuwai, misitu, afya (pamoja na ukimwi) na shughuli za maendeleo endelevu na TISt hujipanga kufikisha habari hii inayotumika kwa vikundi vidogo. Tuna magazeti, mikutano ya kila mwezi ya cluster na semina za kikanda ambapo tunagawana mienendo yetu bora tuliyoanzisha. Faida nyinginezo za TIST ni pamoja na; 

• Malipo ya mapema ya miti iliyo hai.

 • Vuno bora kutokana na Kilimo hai. 

• Bionuwai bora shambani na katika maeneo hifadhi. 

• Kujenga uwezo wa utumizi wa teknolojia, mafunzo na ushirika. 

• Ujuzi wa Kilimo mseto. 

• Marafiki wapya.

 • Ujuzi kuhusu uongozi na usimamizi. 

• Fursa za kuwatumikia wengine.

 • Makubaliano ya kugawana faida. Habari njema kwa wakulima wa TIST: 

Tumesahihishwa na kuthibitishwa tena! KISWAHILI VERSION 3 V ikundi vingi vidogo vya TIST hufahamu na kufuatilia maadili ya TIST. Mafanikio yetu huongozwa na uadilifu na juhudi za kila mmojawetu. Mafanikio yetu yanaongozwa kwa urahis na kufuatilia kwa maadili haya na kila mmoja wetu Katika shughuli zetu nyingi, kutoka upandaji miti, kilimo hai, kuboresha bionuwai, kujenga au kununua meko bora, kufunza na kufuatilia masuala muhimu ya kiafya, kulinda mashamba yetu dhidi ya mmomonyoko wa udongo na uharibifu wa sababu nyingine, kukumbana na mabadiliko ya tabianchi na ukataji miti, kulinda mito yetu ili kupata maji safi na tosha na shughuli nyinginezo zinazoleta pesa, maadili ya TIST yana jukumu kubwa. Katika TIST, Tuko. Sisi ni waaminifu; Sisi ni wenye usahihi; Sisi ni wenye Uwazi; Sisi utumikiana; Sisi huwajibika; Sisi ni mifano ya kuigwa; Sisi hujitolea. Mti wa kiasili ni upi? Mti wa kiasili ni ambao umezoeana na eneo hilo kwa sababu umekua na kuzaana wenyewe kwa muda mrefu. Si miti yote tunayoijua ni ya kiasili. Mingi imeletwe na watu kutoka maeneno yaliyo mbali. Kuna zaidi ya aina mia nane za miti ya kiasili katika Kenya. Ni kwa nini miti ya kiasili ni muhimu? Kwa sababu miti ya kiasili imebadilika pamoja na mazingira, wanyama, mimea na viumbe wengine wanaoizunguka, inafaa kwa eneo hilo. Sana sana inahitaji utunzi mdogo kuliko miti iliyoletwa. Inaongeza mseto mashambani mwetu, kwa hivyo uwezekano wa kuzuka kwa wadudu unapungua. Inaleta faida za kibionuwai kwa mfano huwa kikao cha wanyama pori na faida mbalimbali ketu kutokana na matunda, mbao, majani na dawa ya kiasili. Miti iliyoletwa eneoni yaweza kuwa na faida nyingi lakini mingine huwa gugu na kuiondoa miti na mimea mingine. Tunapopanda miti ya aina ya kiasili mashambani mwetu, tunasaidia kuweka aina zilizokuwa muhimu kwa mama na akina baba wetu, mababu zetu, na kwa watu na wanyama pori wa Kenya kwa vizazi vingi. Bado tunasoma kuhusu faida za aina nyingi zinazotuzunguka. Tumegundua kwamba baadhi ya miti hii hukua haraka kama miti ya aina ya kigeni. Tunapopanda miti ya aina ya kiasili, tunaweza kusaidia kuhakikishakuwa miti na faida zake zitawafikia watoto wetu. Katika TISt, tuna motisha nyongeza za bionuai kwa kupanda miti ya aina ya kiasili.Vikundi karibu na mito vinavyofuatilia mienendo bora kabisa ya TIST katika maeneo yaliyo karibu na mito na kupanda miti ya kiasili, vinaweza kustahili kupokea motisha nyongeza kupitia mradi wa TIST Riparian Corridor initiative. Kwa kuwa na miti aina mbalimbali ya kiasili kando ya mito midogo na mikubwa, wadudu wengine, ndege na wanyama wataweza kusonga na kustawi. Vikundi vidogo vya TISt vilivyo karibu na misitu iliyohifadhiwa, vinavyopanda miti ya kiasili, vyaweza kuingia katika vikundi vya CFA vilivyo karibu nao, ili kupanda aina ya kiasili na kupata pesa kutokana na kaboni iliyo katika hii misitu. Iliyo hapa ni miti ya kiasili chache iliyo Kenya; 

1. Muringa (Cordia Africana) 2. Meru oak-muhuru (vitex keniensis) 3. Mugumo, murumba (ficus thonningii) 4. Podo, muthengera (podocarpus falcatus) 5. Mwiria (prunus africana) 6. Mutoo, Mukeu,(Dombeya rotundifolia). 7. Muuti (erythrina abyssinica) 8. Muuuku, (terminalia brownii) Jaribu kupanda mti wa kiasili katika shamba lakomsimu huu wa mvua! Maadili ya TIST: Nguzo na nguvu ya TIST Umeletewa. na Joseph Gituma Miti aina ya Kiasili ina faida kadha. KISWAHILI VERSION 4 Envirofit G-3300: 2,500 Ksh Envirofit 2-pot/ chimney attachment (to be itakayotumika na G-3300): 1,200 Ksh M wezi jana, Cluster ya Wamura, Kupitia kiongozi wao wa cluster, bwana Charles Ng’anga, ilinunua meko kumi (10) ya aina ya Envirofit. Haya ni meko ya kuokoa nishati yaliyotengezwa kutoka kwa TIST Charles alijitolea kukusanya pesa kutokana na wanacluster waliokuwa na nia ya kununua, akatuma pesa na njia ya M-Pesa kwa Dorothy Naitore (KitiMoto) aliye Meru. Kwa bahati nzuri, mmoja wa cluster ya Wamura alikuwa anaelekea semina Gitoro. Alitumwa kuyafikisha meko haya yaliyoitishwa na cluster ya Wamura. Tunawahimiza cluster zingine kufanya vivyo hivyo. Tutawapa punguzo watakaojipanga kama hawa. Hapa ni meko ya kuokoa nishati yanayouzwa na TIST kwa wanaTISt na wasio wanaTISt, kwa bei za ruzuku. Ukataji misitu ni kutolewa kwa miti na mimea mingine yenye mbao. Misitu na vichaka hufunika sehemu moja juu ya tatu ya ardhi. Miti hubadilisha tabianchi, hulinda maji, hutupa vitu vinavyotokana na misitu (kwa mfano, mbao, dawa, matunda na vingine) vinavyo ughali mkubwa na huruhusu mimea na wanyama wengi tofauti kuishi. Hata hivyo inakatwa kwa mwendo kasi; hectare milioni ishirini kila mwaka. Nusu ya wanaoishi kwa hii dunia hutumia misitu kama nishati, hata hivyo watu kama milioni mia moja hawana nishati tosha kutumia kwa matumizi madogo madogo. Sababu za ukataji misitu Ukataji miti hufanyika wakati mimea inakatwa ili kufungua shamba kutumika kwa njia nyingine kama kufungua shamba ili liweze kulimwa au kwa matumizi mengine kama kutumika kama kuni, kutengeneza matofali, kukausha samaki, kukausha majani chai, kujenga na kama mbao. Kuzoroteka kwa shamba lenye msitu ni wakati msitu unakuwa na miti ya aina chache na unashindwa kuyavumilia mabadiliko yanayokuja kwa sababu ya utumizi na usimamizi mbaya (kwa mfano, miti mizee inapokatwa, ikiachwa midogo, ama aina fulani ikikatwa yote, hadi inapotea kutoka msituni, ama msitu unalishwa wanyama zaidi ya inavyoruhusiwa, hadi miti inashindwa kukua badala ya iliyokufa). Ukataji miti na uharibifu wa shamba lenye msitu mwingi hutokana na kutokuwepo kwa ujuzi kuhusu thamani kamili ya miti. Wakati mwingine, thamani ya miti yaweza kuwa inajulikana lakini umaskini na kutambulika kusio sahihi kuhusu ukosefu wa lingine la kufanya hulazimisha watu kukata miti. Shida zinazojitokeza kufuatilia ukataji wa misitu. Mmomonyoko wa Udongo:Ukosefu wa miti ya kufunika ardhi na mizizi huacha udongo hatarini na huruhusu mmomonyoko wa udongo. Ukosefu wa rasili mali ya msitu tunayohitaji: kukata miti huharibu mahali pa wanyama pa kuishi, hupunguza viumbe hai/ bioanuwai, hutoa rasili mali ya chakula na dawa na huongeza ushindani ili kupata vifaa vyz ujenzi. 

Watu wanahitajika kutembea mbali zaidi ili kupata kuni, na bei za bidhaa zinazotoka misituni zinapanda juu sana. Ukataji misitu unamaanisha ukosefu wa faida nyinginezo za miti: miti hupunguza upepo, uhifadhi unyevu, huongeza hewa safi hewani, na huongeza virutubisho udongoni. Kwa hivyo bila miti hali ya anga ya mahali hapo itakuwa kavu zaidi na kuongeza hatari ya mafuriko, mmonyoko wa udongo unaosababishwa na upepo, kupunguzwa kwa rutuba ya udongo na kupunguzika kwa usafi wa hewa. Tunaweza kufanyeje ili kuzuia ukataji wa miti? Kuanzisha vitalu vya miti na kukuza miti ya kupanda na kupeana au kuuza miti kwa wanajamii. Twafaa kutia moyo wengine kupanda miti pia, na kujiunga na TIST! Tumia meko ya kuokoa nishati, ambayo hutumia kuni na makaa chache Tumia nishati badala inapowezekana (kwa mfano, joto la jua, machujo ya mbao, maganda ya kahawa, nyasi, magugu, mabaki ya mimea, taka za wanyama). Sisi utumikiana: Kiongozi wa Cluster ya Wamura ni mfano wa kuigwa. Umeletewa na Dorothy Naitore Ukataji miti na kuzorota kwa mashamba yenye misitu ni shida kubwa sana. Tunaweza kufanyeje? KISWAHILI VERSION 5 V ikundi vingi vya TIST hufanya kazi nyingi zinazoonekana: kupanda miti na kuboresha mbinu za ukulima. Wakati kuna kazi nyingi inayohitaji kufanyika, ni vizuri kufanya mpango wa hatua zitakazochukuliwa. Kila mwanakikundi afaa kuambia kikundi ni kitu gani wataweza kufanya katika wiki hiyo. Tutawafunza nyinyi na kikundi chenu jinsi ya kufanya mpango wa hatua zitakachochukulia kufanya kazi hiyo. Tafadhali gawana haya na wanakikundi wengine wakati wa mkutano. Hatua ya Utekelezaji ni iliyo:

 • Maalum 

• Inayoonekana (Nzi iliyo ukutani yaweza kukuona ukifanya!) 

• Inayopimika 

• Iliyo na mwanzo na mwisho 

• Hakikisha hatua yako ya utekelezaji ni itakayowezekana na unayoweza kufikia! Kwa mfano, kusema ‘Nitapanda miti’ si hatua ya Utekelezaji kwa sababu ni taarifa ya ujumla. ‘Nitafanya kazi asubuhi tatu wiki hii kupandikiza miche sabini na tano shambani letu jipya’ ni hatua ya utekelezaji kwa sababu ni iliyo maalum (kupandikiza miche sabini na tano),inayoonekana(watu waweza kukuona ukifanya), inayopimika (miche sabini na tano, asubuhi tatu) na ina mwanzo na mwisho(mwishoni mwa siku tatu utaona matokeo). Kikundi chako kitakapokutana tena, ruhusu dakika tano mwishoni mwa mkutano ili kila mtu aripoti kuhusu hatua yake mwenyewe ya utkelezaji. Kila mtu haraka: (1) Aambie kikundi hatua yake ya utekelezaji ya wiki iliyopita. (2) Aseme ni nini chenyewe alichofanya. 

(3) Aseme hatua yake ya utekelezaji ya wiki inayofuata. Kama huyo mtu alifanikiwa katika hatua yake ya utekelezaji, kikundi kinasherehekea fanikio hilo. Ikiwa, kama mara mengi inavyotokea, mwanakikundi ameweza kufanikiwa kufikia kiwango fulani cha lengo lake, kikundi kimtie nguvu na kisimkosoe au kumtia lawama. Watu wanapoweza kugawana bila hofu kuhusu mafanikio na kutofaulu kwao, watahimizwa kufanya vyema zaidi wiki inayofuatilia. Himiza wana kikundi chako kufikiria hatua za utekelezaji zinazowezekana. Hakikisha kila mojawapo ni maalum, inapimika na inawezekana! Gawana na msherehekee hatua za utekelezaji kikundi chako kilichotimiza. Hatua za utekelezaji unapofanya hatua za mipango Njia sawa yaweza kutumiwa unapopangia kitu. Hapa ni mfano katika mabano. Wakati kikundi chako kinapopanga kitakavyofanya, hakikisha mipango yenu ni: Specific- Maalum (Kikundi chetu cha TIST kitapanda miti elfu moja katika hospitali mtaani kabla ya tarehe thelathini, Novemba) Measurable-Inapimika (Ngapi? - Miti elfu moja itapandwa) Achievable/Realistic –Inayoweza kufikiwa (Kikundi chetu cha TIST chaweza kupanda miti elfu moja katika muda wa wiki tano- miti mia moja kila jumanne na alhamisi, miti kumi kwa kila mmoja kila kila siku) Time-bound- Inapimiwa muda (Ina mwanzo na mwisho- tutapanda miti kati ya tarehe kumi na tano, Octoba hadi tarehe thelathini Novemba) Observable- Inaonekana (Nzi ukutani yaweza kutuona tukipanda miti. ) SMARTO! Huu ni mwongozo na kipimo cha hatua zako za utekelezaji na unakusaidia kuwa maalum: 1) Nini – (Kupanda miti elfu moja) 2) Nani – (Wana Kikundi kidogo cha TIST kwa jina) 3) Lini – (Oct 15 – Nov 30) 4) Wapi– (Hospitalini) 5) Aje – (Tutakutana kila Jumanne na Alhamisi alasiri baada ya joto la siku na kuchimba mashimo, halafu tupande miti) 6) Kwa nini– (Kuboresha eneo linalozunguka hospitali, tuwe na kivuli zaidi kwa wagonjwa na wageni, watu waweze kukaa chini ya miti na kivuli kitafanya hospitali iwe baridi zaidi. )+ Sasa, jaribu kujizoesha kufanya hatua za mipango katika mkutano wako wa kikundi kidogo ujao. Mienendo bora zaidi ya vikundi vidogo ya kufanya mambo tofauti: Hatua za kuchukua na kupangia hatua. Kujihusisha na shughuli za upandaji miti za jamii. Kuweni kikundi kizuri cha TIST chenye mafanikio! Himiza majirani na marafiki yako pia kuingia katika TIST Usilime shamba lililopakana na mto. Iache miti na mimea kumea ili kulinda maji haya Kuwa mwenye macho usije ukalisha mifugo shamba kuliko inavyoruhusiwa. 

Usitake mifufo ikaribie miche isije ikaharibu na kunyimu msitu nafasi ya kukua mara ya pili. Himiza kilimo mseto na matumizi ya mashamba madogo ya miti. Kuwa na miti shambani mwako hukupa vitu vinavyotokana na msitu na husaidia kulinda msitu ulio karibu. KISWAHILI VERSION 6 K ujengana ni sehemu muhimu sana ya mkutano wa kila wiki wa kikundi chako. Inasema katika Aefeso 4:15,16 kuwa tujengane hadi tuwe na utimilifu wa Kristu. Kila mtu katika Kikundi chako cha TIST huleta talanta na zawadi zake maalum kikundini. Moja ya vitu vya kuajabisha inayotokea katika kikundi kidogo ni kujua, kugawana na kutumia talanta hizo ulizopewa na Mungu. Kujengana ni njia moja ya kufanya hizo talanta kuonekana na kutumika. Kuna sehemu mbili za Kujengana: 

• Kabla ya ombi la kufunga, kila mtu katika kikundi aseme kitu kizuri maalum ambacho kiongozi amefanya katika mkutano huo. Kwa mfano, alitabasamu, aliweka masaa, alifanya mipango mizuri, aliwatia nguvu wanakikundi wote kuongea, alinisalimu na alinifanya nijisikie nimekaribishwa, alisema kitu kilichokuwa kinaendelea vizuri katika mkutano ama katika kazi iliyokuwa ikifanywa na kikundi, na kadhalika. Kila mwanakikundi anahitajika kusema kitu tofauti. Hili si la kujichagulia. Kila mtu ajenge kiongozi wa utumishi.Vikundi vingine hujenga hata msaidizi wa kiongozi. 

•Kuongezea, ikiwa mtu ameona zawadi iliyoonyeshwa na kiongozi, mwanakikundi anaweza pia kusema ni zawadi ipi. Kwa kupitia uongozi wa mzunguko, kila wiki kiongozi mpya hujengwa. Kupitia Kujengana, tunatiana nguvu kati yetu kuhusu vitu vizuri alivyofanya kiongozi wa wiki hiyo mkutanoni na talanta alizoonyesha mtu huyo. Kujengana pia ni njia ya kujua kuangalia vitu vizuri kuwahusu watu halafu kuvisema. Sote twahitaji kufunza ndimi zetu kusema yaliyo mazuri. Kuongezea, kikundi chote hujua ni nini kikundi kinafikilia ni muhimu katika kiongozi mtumishi. Viongozi wanaofuata watafaidika kupitia waliyosikia katika Kujengana kuhusu viongozi waliopita na kujua ni nini muhimu katika kuwa kiongozi. Kujibu wakati wa kujengana, kiongozi wa wiki hiyo atasema, “Asante.” baada ya kila mwanakikundi kusema taarifa nzuri iliyo maalum. Hakuna kujadiliana kuhusu vipi kungekuwa kuzuri zaidi ama tofauti. Mara nyingi, mtu huyo hufurahi anapoambiwa kuhusu mambo mazuri aliyofanya wakati wa mkutano. Wakati mwingine, huwa tunajua mambo kujihusu ambayo hatukuwa tunajua! Kujengana husaidia kiongozi wa siku hiyo kujua talanta zake na kuzidi kuzitumia. Kujengana pia husaidia kikundi kidogo kwa sababu wana kikundi wote huboresha uongozi wao wa utumishi wanapozidi kujifunza. Kujengana ni baraka mara mbili! Kujengana: Msikose baraka ya Kikundi chenu. Kupalilia kuna umuhimu kwa sababu hizi: 1. Mimea yako yahitaji maji, virutubisho vya udongo na mwanga ili ikue kinguvu. Kama kuna magugu yatashindana na mimea yako kupata vitu hivi. Magugu yatatumia virutubisho vya udongo na maji ambayo mimea yako inahitaji. Matokeo ni kuwa mimea yako itakuwa dhaifu na yaweza kushindwa kuishi. 2. Kama eneo lako halijatolewa magugu, wadudu watavutwa kwa eneo hilo. Wadudu wanaweza kuharibu na kuua mimea yako. Kwa hivyo magugu yalivyo chache, ndivyo nafasi ya nyoka na wadudu kuwa inapungua. Hapa zipo baadhi ya faida za kupalilia shamba lako: 

• Mimea Hukua haraka zaidi kwani magugu hayachukui virutubisho na maji kutoka kwa udongo. 

• Mimea itakuwa yenye nguvu na ikue kwa urefu kwa wakati mfupi

 • Mimea yaweza kupata mionzi ya jua inayohitaji bila kuzuiliwa 

• Mimea haijawekwa wazi ksz magonjwa mengi. 

• Mimea imezuiliwa kutokana na kuenezwa kwa moto

 • Mashamba yasiyo na magugu yanaonyesha kuwa vikundi vidogo vinayadumisha na ni mfano katika mradi wa TIST. 

Hili litawavutia watu wengi kuja na kuona kazi yenu. Ukishapalilia eneo hilo, hakikisha umetoa magugu kutoka shambani. Ukiyaacha magugu yaliyokufa karibu na mimea, bado yanaweza kuwavutia wadudu na magonjwa ambayo yanaweza kuharibu mimea yako. Unaweza kutumia magugu kutengeneza mbolea kwa sababu joto la mtengano wa magugu laweza kuua mbegu za magugu na baadhi ya magonjwa. Kumbuka kupalilia mashamba yenye miti yako pia! Tunashukuru kwa sababu ya mvua tosha msimu huu, lakini tukumbuke kupalilia mimea yetu. Published by TIST-Kenya.
