New support from 'Save Our Rainforest Trust'

April 21, 2015

Earlier today, we were delighted to host Mr. Nick Muriuki Mugwandia and Mr. James Waibochi - founders of “Save Our Rainforest Trust” - at our office in Nairobi. Save Our Rainforest Trust aims to restore degraded forest land in the country particularly in the Aberdare Ecosystem.

During the courtesy call at Green Belt Movement (GBM), they made a contribution to support GBM’s work in memory of the late Dr. Pravin Shah who was a co-founder of Save Our Rainforest Trust. 

GBM will use the funds in our rehabilitation projects around the Gura Watershed in the Aberdare Ecosystem that aims to reduce communities’ dependence on forests through Natural Resource Management and provision of alternative livelihood options.

A big thank you to the “Save Our Rainforest Trust” team and the family of Dr. Pravin Shah for this gesture of support in the conservation efforts of GBM; Wangari Maathai’s legacy truly lives on.
