Wangari Maathai Park 9
Four years after the death of Nobel Peace Prize winner Professor Wangari Maathai, she has been honored with the opening of a park named after her in Lima, Peru. The late Wangari’s passion for tree conservation was remarkable until when she met her demise in 2011.

Here are photos from the launch of the Wangari Maathai Park in Peru that was attended by close to five Kenyan & East African government representatives.

We can just hope that Kenya will give her similar recognition.
