In a statement released by The Green Belt Movement, we are honored and humbled by the recognition of Wangari Maathai’s tireless campaigns for a safe environment, through the renaming of the current Forest Road, in Nairobi, to Professor Wangari Maathai Road by the Nairobi City County.

Her efforts earned her numerous prestigous awards, and respect of millions who were inspired by her commitment to conservation, democracy, women’s empowerment, the eradication of poverty, and civic engagement and we have not been left out as a country.
