Hilda Gacheri broke the internet a few days after the government banned the use of plastic bags in Kenya about a fortnight ago.
The young girl who couldn’t afford a proper school bag to carry her shopping while she reported back to school was spotted carrying her shopping in a shopping bag made from banana fritters.
Her pictures immediately went viral with people calling out NEMA to look into her situation.
NEMA finally heard the cries and visited Hilda at her school Materi Girls with good news.
She received great news that she was officially Kenyans environment ambassador.
The student is also due to meet the CS for environment on a later date. Kenyans have applauded NEMA for the move and have christened Hilda the new Wangari Maathai .
