The seven-times World Rally Champion Sebastian Ogiek has donated 20000 to assist the needy access education and support wildlife conservancy in Kenya.

In a post on his Facebook account on Tuesday evening, the Frenchman said half of the amount would be channeled to the Nakuru Children’s Project. The other half will go to the Olpejeta Conservancy.

Nakuru Children’s Project is a UK-based charity that helps children achieve their dreams through education, whereas the Olpejeta Conservancy

works to conserve wildlife, provide a sanctuary for great apes, and generate income through wildlife tourism for re-investment in conservation and community development.

The donations come just a few weeks after Ogiek emerged Safari Rally Kenya champion. The race was held in the East African nation after nineteen years.

“A few weeks ago, we were celebrating our 4th win of the season at the World Rally Championship in Naivasha, with incredible support from locals in the most amazing nature. It was my first time in Africa and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of Kenya, the warm-hearted people and its incredible wildlife.This wonderful country has got a place in my heart,” wrote Ogiek.

“I will support the Nakuru Children’s Project  with 10,000 Euros and another 10,000 Euros to conserve wildlife at the Olpejeta Conservancy,” he further stated.
