HEEP Group is a Community Based Organization [CBO] focusing on four thematic areas i.e. Health, Education Environmental Management and Poverty Eradication initiatives. Its main focus for calendar year 2012 is Education and Environment Management. HEEP Group works with school going youth to empower them to make a positive change within their community.
Kenya has witnessed changing weather patterns occasioned by poor handling of the environment leading to catastrophes like prolonged drought, floods, and consequently famine. Therefore, it is everyone’s responsibility to act urgently.
We believe that youth when educated and given direction on environmental best practices, would champion the desired change initially within Isinya District in Kajiado County which is most semi-arid. In this regard and in order to achieve set objectives, HEEP Group, with the assistance of the Provincial Administration through the Office of the District Commission and Area Chiefs, Ministries of Agriculture and Forestry, Isinya District, Kajiado County have partnered with schools in Kajiado County to implement the 1 million tree planting initiative. The campaign is set to run in 2012, at the onset of the long rains.
We therefore request your support to procure the seedlings and nurture the same to a point where their survival is guaranteed. Our estimated budget is Kshs. 200/- per tree per to effectively sustain the tree to a survival point. Of the 1 million trees, our expected survival rate is 95%.
This is a worthy project that needs a lot of support be it in kind or financial and it is our hope and request that you consider our request positively.
