Restoration of degraded forest lands
We are implementing an ambitious project of restoring over 1000 hectares of degraded lands inside Mount Kenya’s Forest Our partner organizations include the Community Forest Associations and Kenya Forest Services. These sights experienced massive degradation as a result of illegal activities. These activities include massive cutting down of trees for timber and posts, charcoal burning and Shambasystem. These areas must be restored through tree planting and community sensitization. Our organization helps in establishing sustainable nurseries by providing nursery equipment, training on nursery establishment and management, engagement for communities site preparation, planting and after planting management, and community awareness of natural resource asset valuation.
