We all have heroes, someone who has done something selfless and noble. In Kenya, Mashujaa day is a public holiday set aside to celebrate Kenyans that have achieved great feats. A group of hikers decided to be heroes to mother nature.
Kwea Milele, who had a project on the 1%CLUB to raise funds for the reforestation of the burnt Arbadares Forest boasted 67 heroes. The group joined other groups and at the end of the day, 15,000 tree seedlings had been planted. What followed thereafter was a game drive at the Mt. Kenya forest and an overnight camping.
Interestingly, the activity took place near the Treetop Lodge where the current English Queen Elizabeh II ascended to the throne in 1952. The group plans to make the event annual or seasonal and incorporate other organization to make sure more trees are planted in each season and each year.
Here are some fun photos from this exercise. Congratulations Kwea Milele on this accomplishment. As their motto goes, “Kilele Milele”
