About the “Lungs for Kenya” Charity Golf Tournament
Nature Kenya will be hosting the “Lungs for Kenya” Charity Golf Tournament this year on 21st March at the Karen Country Club, with tee off scheduled for noon. The tournament seeks to raise funds to support conservation initiatives in Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs).
All for Charity
The “Lungs for Kenya” campaign, initiated by Nature Kenya, aims at raising funds to plant 1 million trees in four Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) at the coast, namely the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, Dakatcha Woodslands, Taita Hills Forests and Tana River Delta, in 2014.
Proceeds from this golf tournament will be channelled 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 under the “Lungs for Kenya” campaign.
