Warren Buffet once said : Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. 

Let’s face it-The quest for a super skyline is destroying our Greenline. Unless someone does something NOW, the coming generations will be living in a ballast forest-so to speak. Imagine Nairobi without trees….and the title we all love- The Green City in The Sun gets lost. 


“The cost of planting and maintaining one seedling is Sh.200. Donate to this cause via M-pesa 89857 #PAWA254


We wouldn’t love that, I would abhor imagining that! And that’s why I have to tell you this:


Twestival Nairobi seeks to raise funds to assist the Nairobi Greenline, a KWS – KAM project to protect the Nairobi National Park by planting and taking care of at least 750 seedlings, online and offline. The climax of this all will be on the PAWA 254 rooftop on the 22nd November 2013 from 6pm. ” The seedlings will be planted on the 23rd November 2013 and will go a long way in ensuring that the 30km long, 50m wide forest of indigenous trees shielding the Nairobi National park from our growing metropolis target is achieved “


There are various ways you can help achieve this noble target:

a)      Send monetary donations to MPESA BUY GOODS TILL NUMBER 89857
b)     Attend the fundraising event at Pawa 254 on November 22nd from 6pm. 
c)       Purchase merchandise to support the cause. Merchandise can be ordered online or bought during the event.
e)      Join in the tree planting exercise on Saturday 23rd November 2013.
