As part of its corporate social responsibility, KIPPRA in collaboration with the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences (CAVS) planted 700 trees at the Vet Farm-Kanyariri, which is part of University of Nairobi, on May 24, 2013. Each staff member present planted at least two trees. The event was graced by Dr John Omiti, KIPPRA’s Executive Director, Prof. Solomon Shibairo (Dean of Faculty of Agriculture-FoA), Associate Dean Principal FoA, Vet Farm Manager and Head of Animal Production who also read a speech from CAVS Principal, Prof. Agnes Mwang’ombe (KIPPRA’s Board Chair).
Also during the event, KIPPRA had an opportunity to hold a drug abuse and HIV/AIDS awareness talk with the University of Nairobi students. “Just as a tree needs to be nurtured to maturity, so should each one of us nurture his/her life by taking precaution against drug abuse and contracting HIV/AIDS,” observed Rose Muraya-Ngara, Policy Analyst and member of the HIV/AIDS committee.
