Celebrating Wangari Maathai at 76

March 30, 2016
Dear Friends and Partners,

The Green Belt Movement is delighted to invite you to a tree-planting celebration of our Founder’s 76th birthday at the Wangari Maathai corner in Karura Forest on Friday April 1, 2016. 76 trees will be planted in Karura; one for each year Wangari would have been with us had she not so lamentably departed.

This celebration will be presided over by the Honorable Chief Justice of the Republic of Kenya, Dr. Willy M. Mutunga, who will himself plant at least one tree.

Our global appeal is that we all personally and collectively start the month of April 2016 by planting at least one tree on April 1 and then go an extra mile throughout this April, Wangari’s birthday month, to each plant a total of 76 trees.

The brief event will start at 8.30am and end at 10am.

We look forward to having you join us on this day, or you planting a tree for Wangari wherever you are.

We remain grateful as always for your kind support.

Aisha Karanja
Executive Director
