Reforestation Project for Africa

The aim of this project is to help save the environment and educate the community on ways of preserving, managing and improving the way they utilize the land in order to help preserve for the welfare of all Kenyans.

 

At the same time job opportunities are created.

 

Putting hands together to help make a difference

 

The aim of this project is to help keep the community interested in the preservation, management and improvement of our environment for the welfare of all Kenyans.

 

We also want to educate the local community on the importance of Agro-forestry and to guide them on the implementation of it. And, to teach the local community how they can benefit from the growth of agricultural forestry by creating skills which enable them to learn how to grow their own food and take care and respect their land.

 

With farming of various fruits such as bananas, mangos, pawpaw, avocados, passion fruits etc, according to the ICRAF and UNEP, this action would help combat climate change, boost food production and eradicate poverty.

 

Fertilizer trees which capture nitrogen from the air and transfer it to the soil are vital. It is estimated that if grown widely the use of commercial nitrogen fertilizers will be reduced significantly and at the same time the crop yields will be more than double.

 

We are all about “kazi kwa vijana”. How many of us are doing something about it. We can not solely depend on governmental support; if we each create a few jobs for the youth in our community, many Kenyan youths will be employed and tree planting can employ thousands of young people.

 

This of course requires funding and that is why we are urgently requesting money in order to continue building and further developing this project.
