ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION

The Amrit Foundation continues to promote environmental conservation throughout the Manrik group by encouraging use of environmental-friendly products, proper waste management and energy conservation practices such as the use of solar power aimed at reducing the environmental impact on particularly in the areas within which we operate in.

Human existence is quite impossible without the presence of a healthy ecosystem. Our environment comprises all living and non-living components and their interactions within a natural habitat. The Aquila Development Limited continues to deploy best management practice, a floriculture industry-driven effort to maintain production in a profitable, environmentally-sensitive and sustainable manner.

In Amboseli, it is unfortunate that the beautiful land with the scenic view of Mount Kilimanjaro is prone to prolonged droughts year in year out. The rocky terrains barely hold water long enough to farm subsistence produce. As such, we are always on hand to participate in initiatives that promote environmental awareness in the area. These initiatives include tree planting in conjunction with the community, provision of clean drinking water for the employees, their families and neighboring community.

The Amrit Foundation in partnership with My Chosen Vessel (MCV) has been involved in the installation of simple solar powered lighting and phone charging system in some of the homes in Amboseli. MCV is an organization from the USA whose mission is to empower Maasai people in Amboseli through provision of clean water and environmental conservation. Other support areas include installation of windows for increased daylight as well as smokeless jikos among others.

To actively participate in those noble endeavors, contact the Amrit Foundation Trust and we will be more than happy to provide further details and information.
