A Green Affair

In the heart of Thika, a town pulsating with life and a commitment to environmental sustainability, 'We Don't Have Time' orchestrated a phenomenal tree planting event, aptly named 'Greening Thika Estates.' The sunlit morning witnessed an impressive turnout of over 400 enthusiastic individuals, all converging at Christina Gardens, a public haven brimming with the promise of a greener future.

Organized in collaboration with the spirited 'Green Warriors,' a formidable force in environmental activism, 'We Don't Have Time' proudly stood as patrons of this eco-friendly spectacle. The camaraderie was palpable as numerous other organizations joined hands, turning this event into a collective endeavor for a healthier planet.
The ambitious mission kicked off with the planting of more than 300 trees, transforming the landscape along prominent locales like Kenyatta Highway, Majengo Estate, Starehe Estate, and Pilot Estate. The verdant wave of change swept through Thika, leaving a trail of fresh hope and sustainable aspirations.

The culmination of this eco-journey led the participants to the iconic YMCA Thika, where the seeds of camaraderie and environmental stewardship were sown. It was not just about planting trees; it was a celebration of unity, shared purpose, and the birth of 'Green Warriors.' This organization, spearheaded by the 'Green Warriors,' marked its inception during the event, symbolizing a new era of environmental guardianship.
The collective effort wasn't a solo act; rather, it was a symphony of dedicated organizations playing their part in the environmental concerto. Eco Shades, Empower Networks CBO, Tuko Strong Pamoja, Kenya Red Cross, Tenji Designs and Interior Clinic, Mount Kenya University, Dreams, Kenya News Agency, V-Spot, Boresha Jamii, Matunda Mazuri, Kenya Youth Organization, The County Government of Kiambu, and YMCA – each entity added a unique note to this harmonious green melody.

The vibrancy of the event was further amplified by the youthful energy that permeated every corner. Most of the attendees were enthusiastic youth, embodying the spirit of change and the promise of a sustainable tomorrow. Their commitment to the cause echoed the sentiment that the future belongs to those who plant seeds today.
Beyond the planting and the pledges, the event encapsulated the true essence of community engagement. It was a collective vow to nurture the saplings, cultivate green mindsets, and weave a tapestry of environmental consciousness that extends beyond a single day.
'Greening Thika Estates' was more than a tree planting event; it was a symbol of unity, a promise for a greener future, and the advent of 'Green Warriors' heralding a new era of environmental advocacy in Thika. As the sun set on YMCA Thika, the planted trees stood tall, whispering promises of a thriving and sustainable Thika to future generations.
