THE IMPORTANCE OF TREES AND OUR COMMITMENT TO BEING THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE
The importance of trees cannot be overstated. Not only do they provide the oxygen we breathe, but they also absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, prevent soil erosion, and provide habitats for countless animal species. As the Family Group Foundation, we recognize the critical role that trees play in maintaining the health of our planet, and have initiated a tree planting program at Corner Baridi, Ngong Hills in Kenya to help combat deforestation and support local communities.
According to recent studies, deforestation accounts for up to 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions, making it a significant contributor to climate change. By planting trees, we can help offset these emissions and work towards a more sustainable future for generations to come. At Corner Baridi, Ngong Hills, we are committed to planting a diverse range of indigenous tree species, which not only provide valuable ecological benefits but also support the local economy by creating jobs for the community.
In addition to our tree planting initiative, we are proud to support the people who maintain the Ngong Hills forest. These individuals play a crucial role in protecting the area from illegal logging, wildfires, and other threats, and their work ensures that the forest remains a vibrant and healthy ecosystem for generations to come.
At the Family Group Foundation, we understand that our actions have a global impact, and we take our responsibility to the environment and our community seriously. Through our tree planting program at Corner Baridi, Ngong Hills, we are working towards a greener, more sustainable future, one tree at a time. Join us in our mission to protect the planet and support local communities by making a donation or volunteering today. Together, we can make a difference.
