Why Kenya?

Kenya is dotted with an amazing landscape, from the coast to the savannah grasslands to the highlands forests near Mount Kenya and the Rift Valley to the only remaining rain forest in Kenya - Kakamega Rain Forest and the lake basin forests overlooking Lake Victoria..the second largest freshwater in the world. In the last four decades, Kenya’s forest shrunk upto 3% forest cover because of illegal logging and lack of political goodwill. In the last 7 years the government has come up with measures to protect, conserve and welcome the private sector to participate in conservation efforts. The political goodwill is now there!

Lungs of the earth

Trees are the lungs of the earth. Without trees on earth, human beings would not survive but without human beings, trees would still survive on earth abundantly. Trees absorb almost all the carbon dioxide emitted by man and man’s activities including but not limited to manufacturing, agriculture and transportation. Global warming is directly attributed to the loss of forest cover and increased emissions. Protecting the lungs of the earth (trees) is the only sure way of reversing global warming and defending the world’s biodiversity.

Our Approach

The current forest cover in Kenya stands at 7.4% which is 3.6% shy of the constitutionally accepted 10% forest cover. The Kenya Forest Service has established guidelines for Adoption of a forest or part of a forest for tree planting & maintenance, protection and conservation in order to accelerate reforestation of degraded terrestrial, mangroves and dry land forests.
