Walk for a cause – “Friends of trees” It is amazing what a small group of committed people can accomplish to change this world. “They say that the journey of a hundred miles starts with one small step in the right direction.” With this spirit, an activity “Friends of Trees” was organized for wi-tribe employees which involved a walk from head office to the Faisal mosque (and planting trees at the venue) letting mother nature know that we care for her gifts. Tribers participated in this activity whole heartedly. The activity not only focused on promoting employee’s health but also on creating a network of like-minded people; to educate ourselves on the issues of environment and importance of green areas around us. A total of 110 Pine Trees were planted with the kind cooperation of CDA.
