KIPPRA staff were part of the 2023 edition of the Keraita Forest Challenge on 25th November at Kereita Forest. The team of 28 staff was led by the Corporate Social Responsivity commitee. The forest challenge is an initiative of the East African Wildlife Society (EAWLS) in collaboration with Kijabe Environment Volunteers (KENVO) and Kenya Forest Service (KFS). It is a unique opportunity for participants to interact with nature by taking part in competitive yet fun activities in Kereita Forest, which forms part of the larger Aberdare Forest. All seven KIPPRA teams successfully completed the fun but challenging forest challenge. KIPPRA staff also planted 350 indigenous trees during the exercise as part of the Institute’s CSR and contribution to conserving the ecosystem. This activity also aligns with the KIPPRA staff well-being objectives.
