Nature Kenya invites you to their sixth annual Charity Golf Tournament, Lungs for Kenya, that will be held on Friday 20th March, 2015, starting at 12 noon at Karen Country Club.
• Ksh. 1,500 – Nature Kenya member
• Ksh. 2, 000 – Non Nature Kenya member.
Teams can also be entered for Ksh 8,000. Tee off time starts at 12:00 noon.
The proceeds from the tournament will help Nature Kenya raise awareness of Kenya’s valuable ecosystems, and empower local communities to take the lead in their conservation.
In the five years Nature Kenya has been held the above tournament, the proceeds have been hugely successful in helping them to improve the lives of communities and conserve ecosystems in a number of locations across the country.
The proceeds of the 2014 tournament were used in planting 75,000 tree seedlings in the vulnerable Dakatcha woodland, an important Bird Area near Malindi and assisted communities living near Arabuko-Sokoke and Dakatcha to establish and manage tree nurseries as part of the forest rehabilitation programme.
This success story has only been possible through the kind support of individual like you. Please this time round consider supporting this conservation work as you enjoy the game of golf.
Donations towards the golf tournament are also welcomed. Find more info. here
This year’s golf theme is under the Lungs for Kenya campaign initiated by Nature Kenya with an aim of raising funds to plant 1 million trees in 4 sites in Coastal Kenya in 2014. To support this campaign, proceeds from the golf tournament will go towards assisting communities living adjacent to the Arabuko Sokoke Forest establish, manage and sustain communal tree nurseries, and also plant 100,000 seedlings as part of the forest’s rehabilitation program.
Nature Kenya has been partnering with 19 local community environmental groups, which have a total of over 1800 members in a range of sites across the country. These local communities near Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas are actively participating in tree planting. Last year, this effort was recognized when Nature Kenya was awarded the Total ECO Challenge Gold award for planting 1 million tree seedlings in Mount Kenya, North Rift and Western regions in the year 2012. These seedlings continue to be nurtured to see them grow into mature trees.
