Kenya Law Greens the Nairobi National Park

Kenya Law staff participated in a major tree planting exercise at the Nairobi National Park on Friday, June 26th 2015. The initiative which was spearheaded by the Ag. CEO Mr. Longet Terer saw 70 employees plant 250 trees at the park, the only game park in the world located within a city.

Kenya Law is aware of its obligation in the advancement of society and has a mandate to care for the wellbeing of one another and of the environment and to align its processes, services and products with the attainment of positive social outcomes.

The tree planting activity was indeed a great chance for Kenya Law to work for a good cause. It was a key activity of Kenya Law’s corporate Social responsibility’s program.

The benefits of tree planting cannot be emphasized enough. In recent years, our generous, tranquil Nairobi National Park has experienced ever-increasing human encroachment as the city outgrows itself. Its proximity to the capital has exposed the Park and its rich ecosystem to massive environmental risks.

It is for these reasons that Kenya Law partnered with the Nairobi GreenLine Trust, a project that invites industries, conservationists, corporate organizations and the public to join the campaign to grow 300,000 trees from the Cheetah Gate in Athi River, a distance of 32km, to the Carnivore restaurant.

“This is an opportunity for staff to support community events in a very practical way. It’s wonderful that Kenya Law is part of the dream to make Nairobi National Park not just a greener place but to also bring back wildlife to the city.” Said Mr. Terer .

The initiative leaves a visible legacy, which will see the organization make the activity an annual tradition.
