On Saturday, 19th August 2023, the Council of the Law Society of Kenya and the Board of Management of the Advocates’ Benevolent Association undertook three essential CSR activities as part of the LSK Annual Conference.

The three activities were as follows;

  • Tree Planting Exercise at Kaya Kinondo Sacred Forest:

The Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Forestry donated over 1,000 tree seedlings of different indigenous and exotic trees to the course which was in line with the theme of the Conference. Advocates turned up in large numbers to plan the tree seedlings at the Kaya Kinondo Sacred Forest.

This was arrived at as a need to address the impact of climate change on coastal ecosystems. The initiative was not only to symbolize the Society’s dedication to reforestation and climate justice but also serve as a tangible step towards mitigating the effects of climate change. By planting indigenous and exotic trees, we contribute to global reforestation efforts, repair ecosystems, and combat climate change.

  • Beach Clean-up Exercise:

Advocates engaged in a beach clean-up exercise to combat coastal pollution and preserve the beauty of our surroundings. This hands-on activity involved participants in collecting garbage, debris, and waste from the coastline. With this, we aim to mitigate environmental pollution and protect the coastal ecosystem for generations to come.

  • Visit to Born-Again Children’s Home:

Recognizing the importance of community and social support, members of the Society visited the Born Again Children’s Home in Ukunda. The Society donated roofing material worth Kshs. 250,000 and assorted foodstuff worth Kshs. 50,000. In addition, the advocates held a mini fundraiser which saw Kshs. 270,000 collected and presented to the management of the home. All these were done to enhance the living conditions of these young souls who deserve safe and comfortable shelter.

These CSR activities embody the Society’s commitment to social, economic, and environmental change, aligning with this year’s conference theme, “Climate Change: From Theory to Action, the Role of the Legal Profession in Climate Justice.”
