Overwhelmed by the incredible support of the locals, the world rally champion and Kenya safari rally winner Sebastien Ogier has donated 10% of his prize money to support wildlife conservation at OlPejeta and Nakuru Children’s project.
In a Twitter post, the Safari rally champion noted that “#Safarirallykenya was my first time in Africa and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of Kenya, the warm-hearted people, and its incredible wildlife. Therefore I’m happy to support @Nakuru_Children and @OlPejeta with a donation”
Nakuru Children’s Project is a non-profit organization that aims to relieve poverty and improve education for children in Nakuru, Kenya. In a tweet, the Founder of Nakuru Children’s project Zoe Kelland appreciated the generous donation from the rally champion noting that the donation would go a long way in making the dreams of Nakuru children’s project a reality
On the other hand, Olpejeta prides itself as East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary and home to the last two remaining northern white rhinos on the planet. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a Sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya and still manages a very successful livestock programme. Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders, to ensure wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare, and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians. in a tweet, the conservancy said it was much grateful for the donation by the Rally champion.
As a media house, we take this opportunity to thank the rally champion, Sebastian Ogier, for the kindness and hope more people can come out and support the good work being done by the two institutions.
