Planting trees can honor an individual, commemorate an event, and memorialize a loved one or even a special occasion. Every tree is a living legacy a gift that will grow more decisive year after year and a unique way to express your feelings. No other gift lasts as long and yields so many benefits. As we commemorate Kenya’s most celebrated freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi Waciuri”s 102nd birthday on 31st October 2022. The Dedan Kimathi Foundation in partnership with other stakeholders plans to plant 1,000,102 trees countrywide throughout the ongoing campaign in honor of the hero.
Last year only our good people, DKF planted over 25,000 trees at the Sasumwa Dam water catchment. God willing and we have both the hope and what it takes to plant 1 million trees plus 102 seedlings country-wide! This will not only be a major achievement but a real blueprint for making our universe habitable!
In doing so, Dedan Kimathi Foundation Hearby does encourage all of us to be devoted tree planters. Trees provide so many benefits to our everyday lives. They filter clean air, provide fresh drinking water, help curb climate change, and create homes for thousands of species of plants and animals. Planting a billion trees can help save the Earth from climate change and biodiversity loss. Dedan Kimathi Foundation has not only taught our children the importance of trees but exactly what forests do to the ozone layer scientifically so to say!
Dedan Kimathi Foundation has never lagged behind as far as tree planting is concerned. By urging our people to plant trees, we will champion this cause to the bitter end. Therefore be with us at all times, and give us reliable support! Let us make our world shiny together.
