By Collins Ochumbe, Secretary of Chake Conservancy
The year 2020 has been a challenging period for Chake Conservancy as a whole, most of the planned projects had to stop full operation due to the Covid pandemic. However, the conservancy in collaboration with dedicated partners were able to implement various activities focused around tree planting along the Mara escarpment. With the community gathered we took the opportunity to reinforce environmental conservation and health & safety messages by distributing PPE to people without face masks.
It is in this regard that we as the management have planned for a small party to wrap up the year in style. On the 31st of this month we shall be having our partners Kenya Wildlife Services, Kenya Forest Service and Shavicol Tours and Safaris come together to have a physical planning meeting and enjoy a meal together. By necessity, we will observe safety protocols regarding mask-wearing and social distance while eating.
We welcome all our friends and supporters to be part of this special event in spirit. If you wish to contribute towards the purchase of items for the party, it would be most welcome and you can do so via our general donation Paypal button, please state the purpose of donation in the message area so that we can distinguish between party support and support for our ongoing conservancy activities: tree planting, Rangers, lighting, beehives, widows and orphans etc.
Many thanks again and our best wishes to you for a happy New Year!
