"We have been actively involved in tree planting activities with schools, public institutions, and the private sector, and the partnership with the Kenya Forest Service offers a great framework for adoption” said Karanja Ndegwa, Jambojet Managing Director and CEO.

Speaking during the groundbreaking ceremony at Ngong Hills Forest on June 17, Karanja further noted plans to replicate the Adopt-A-Forest framework across its 7 destinations in Kenya, including Nairobi, and Mombasa, Kisumu, Diani, Malindi, Eldoret, and Lamu.
