The Underlying Problem

Deforestation has long been a problem. When Kenya gained independence in 1963, 10% of the country was covered in forest. By 2009, this number had dropped to 6% as a result of charcoal and timber production, agriculture expansion, unregulated logging and urbanisation. Not only has this increased our contribution to climate change, it has had a number of other devastating impacts, including soil erosion, Land Slide, increased flooding and dramatically reduced availability of fresh water during droughts.

Water towers under threat

Kenya’s five montane forests — called “water towers” because of their ability to store water during the rainy season and release it slowly during dry periods — provide 75% of our freshwater supplies. The United Nations Environment Programme estimated that between 2000 and 2010 more than 28,000 hectares of forest was lost from these water towers, “leading to reduced water availability of approximately 62 million cubic metres per year”. The resulting costs to our economy far exceeded the financial gains from forestry and logging during that same period by a ratio of four to one. Nearly a decade ago, the government at the time began to wake up to the problem and made a constitutional commitment to replenish the country’s forests back to 10% of surface area by 2030, which is equivalent to more than 1.6 million hectares of reforestation. Sadly, though, initial efforts were hampered by illegal logging, land disputes, and political infighting

Our Solution

1.)Teaching the younger generation how to develop Tree Seedbeds, Plant and grow trees in their Communities.
2.)Planting new indigenous trees in schools, Government Forests, Private Farms/forests and Bare land
3.)Re-planting indigenous trees in water catchment areas.

“While Nature can survive without people, we believe People can't survive without nature”

Our Mission

To Plant Indigenous Trees, protect and enhance Kenyan forests for present and future generations

Lets Sustain Life through planting, growing and maintaining trees through Educating and Empowering our communities.
