Strathmore University ENACTUS Club Participates in Tree Planting Exercise
56 Strathmore Enactus Club members participated in a tree planting initiative, organized by National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) at the Nairobi National Park. A total of 10, 000 trees were planted during the event which took place on 11th November, 2017.
Club members had a wonderful and exciting time at the park where they planted over 1,000 trees. The exercise, which meant more than planting trees, was an opportunity for the members to give back to society.
Some of the Club members dug holes while others transported seedlings from their nurseries to the planting site. Through this exercise, some Club members who had never planted trees before enjoyed an opportunity to do so.
To ensure that the process moved on smoothly, Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) wardens and NEMA officials stepped in to guide and give directions whenever they deemed fit.
Later, Club members were treated to a game drive around the park courtesy of KWS where they saw lions, gazelles and warthogs.
