The Kijabe forest in Kenya is a paradise on earth that was once dominated by trees of all kinds. To date, only a third of the forest still resists, and 200,000 people depend on just 5000 hectares of forest for water, food, wood, and agriculture.
Wild construction, illegal logging activities are responsible for soil erosion and for the drastic reduction of the forest.
Planting trees again in this forest is essential to protect the ecosystem, develop environmental education and create a sustainable economy through seed production and ecological tourism.
The project, in collaboration with our partners, aims to restore 5000 hectares of forest. To achieve this goal, we will collaborate with local organizations to protect, conserve and restore the entire forest, protecting water and the whole ecosystem. Planting trees will lead to a significant improvement in the local economy by creating new jobs, through the activities generated by ecological tourism, by natural forest products and by encouraging education to respect the environment.
These trees will be decisive for the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere, will allow the soil to return fertile and will become a vital resource for local populations.
Supporting the project, each supporter will have a certificate of thanks and updates for life on the project through email. Planting trees is an investment in the future of the planet and for a better life for our children.
