Through the partnership of African Air Rescue, AAR, Best Buddies Kenya had an opportunity of establishing a tree-planting exercise in all the Best Buddies chapters. “The tree planting program has just come in hand as the rainy seasons are just around the corner. This is also a great opportunity for the buddy pairs to give back to the community as they all engage in community awareness activity.” said Mrs Musima the school head teacher of Mathare special school.
All the buddy pairs from all the chapters were all engaged in this unique community awareness exercise that also added in making their respective schools look green hence contributing to the healthy environment around. “We are proud to be a part of the climate change revolutionists here in our school.” Said Victor Mwanza and his buddy, John Mwangi from St. Genesis High School.
A total of 3000 trees were planted in all the chapters. “Best Buddies Kenya is so proud of AAR and other donors through Global Giving who have made and continue to make success of its movement around the country. We would urge the donors to continue with their generous contribution towards this worthy cause as we strive to make a difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.” Said, Enouce Ndeche, Executive Director, Best Buddies Kenya.
