In 2004, after 11 lions from the Nairobi National Park were cruelly slaughtered by livestock owners near the park whose livestock had been eaten by lions, African Heritage House organized fund raisers to compensate the livestock owners for their losses.
This program had been operating well in the past but the money had run out. African Heritage House organized a total of 4 such African Heritage Days for this purpose, with several hundred donors and well wishers coming to the house on the old steam train.
The top donors for the African Heritage Lion Endowment Program held at African Heritage House are commemorated in a permanent billboard at the entry to the Nairobi National Park.
