This past Wednesday our corporate social responsibility team did something different from all our usual CSR activities. Some of our staff, with the help of the African Fund For Endangered wildlife (AFEW) set out to accompany students from Body of Christ children's home,Limuru (BOC) for an educational trip organised and sponsored by (AFEW) also known as the Giraffe Center, a non-profit making organization whose main objective is to provide conservation education for school children and the youth of Kenya.
The starting point of the trip was the Giraffe center, which acts as a breeding place for the endangered Rothschild Giraffes in Kenya. Here the children enjoyed educational talks and fed the Giraffe.
They then proceeded to the Sheldricks Elephant Orphanage, where they were given talks on the importance of protecting our elephants and other animals against poaching. The BOC children also got to view baby elephants.
The kids were then treated to a lunch at the Mamba village, and enjoyed an unforgettable afternoon visit to the animal orphanage.
We say a big "thank you" to AFEW for sponsoring the trip, and urge all of you to join us in promoting more of CSR to our communities.
