It is time to draw the line to protect the parks and conserve our flora and fauna to co-exist with nature and save our priceless national heritage for our children and posterity.
On November 22nd 2013, we seek to raise funds to assist the Nairobi Greenline, a KWS – KAM project to protect the Nairobi National Park by planting and taking care of at least 750 seedlings. Funds will be raised both online and offline with the climax being at the PAWA 254 rooftop on the 22nd November 2013 from 6pm. The seedlings will be planted on the 23rd November 2013 and will go a long way in ensuring that the 30km long, 50m wide forest of indigenous trees shielding the Nairobi National park from our growing metropolis target is achieved.
A few reasons why we need you to join us to raise funds to plant at least 750 trees on November 2013.
