We need the earth more than it needs us. This is the message that runs down through the veins of BM Foundation who have been leading the way in ensuring that the earth has additional trees as they strive to make it better.

BM Foundation was founded in 2017 as part of BM Security’s commitment to be a responsible corporate citizen.

“BM Security is cognizant of the importance of the community and environment we work in and are thus committed to programs that will impact positively on the same. BM foundation drives all initiatives by BM Security geared towards improving our society,” said Michelle Morgan, BM Security Executive Director.

Focusing on Health and Wellbeing, Social Impact, and Climate Change, the Foundation believes that the only way to make sure that the earth has more trees is by planting more.

In one of its recent events, the Foundation was hosted by the Kenya Forest Service, Friends of Karura, and attended by over sixty dedicated volunteers from the BM fraternity planted over 500 trees in Karura Forest.

The participants showed up with their family members marking BM Foundation’s pledge to contributing to a sustainable environment and ecosystem geared toward enhancing livelihoods through environmental and social initiatives.

During the event, the BM Foundation fraternity was guided on the best practice of tree planting by the KFS with Ceremonial trees planted in honor of Bob Morgan planted by Chief Executive Officer Neil Morgan and in honor of Managing Director Cedar Morgan planted by Executive Director Michelle Morgan led by the Station Manager, Paul Musembi.

“The goal of halting deforestation and restoring forests, as set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is an attainable objective if we continue our efforts. This goes a long way towards achieving KFS’ Presidential and in turn constitutional mandate of 10 percent Tree cover,” said Peter Kinyua, the Chair of the Kenya Forest Service.

According to the Foundation, there is a need for organizations to help in reducing carbon emissions across the country and the world in general. The Foundation says it is striving to stamp its carbon footprint and through initiatives such as this seeks to leave a legacy of a sustainable future.

“We ask individuals to join the cause contributing to a sustainable environment and ecosystem geared toward enhancing livelihoods through environmental and social initiatives,” added Nicole Gitau- BM Foundation Manager.
