300 TREES PLANTED IN ATHI RIVER


On 2nd April 2022, in partnership with Safe Environment Advocacy, we planted 300 trees along a section of River Athi in Athi River Township ward, Mavoko Municipality, Mavoko constituency, Machakos County, Kenya. The river bank stretch to be covered begins near KETRACO- Athi River substation and ends opposite to the East African Portland Cement Plant.


The Athi River starts in the iconic Ngong Hills that rise above Nairobi. It flows past the bustling metropolis and joins other rivers finally draining into the Indian Ocean. The river, its tributaries and riverbanks are the source of irrigation and drinking water for millions of people, and wildlife. River Athi runs through 3 counties; Machakos, Makueni & Kitui before joining other rivers.


There is a human settlement of approximately 322, 499 people within mavoko constituency near phase 1 of the initiative area and close to 3.2 million people staying along the full stretch of the river.


River Athi is among the most polluted rivers in Kenya and the human settlement near the initiative area has previously been affected by floods from the river.


The main objective of the tree planting activity was to support the protection of biodiversity through integrated approach whilst working towards the achievement of the ‘Tupande Miti na Vulipap’ initiative.
