Summary

Mount Kenya the second highest mountain in Africa is covered with large forest which is home to many animals as well as different birds species. Starting early 1960s to late 1990s, the forest experienced massive deforestation from human activities which included; timber harvesting, charcoal burning, forest cultivation and grazing. Many areas which experienced massive deforestation never regenerated back and thus needs for restoration through tree planting.

Challenge

Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa and covered with large forest which is home to many animals as well as birds species. Starting early 1960s to late 1990s, the forest experienced massive deforestation from human activities which included; timber harvesting, charcoal burning, forest cultivation and grazing. Many areas which experienced massive deforestation never regenerated back and thus needs for restoration through tree planting.

Solution

We work on the ground with local community living adjacent to the forest in restoring degraded forest lands. Our programs empower these community members to establish tree nurseries, manage seedlings in the nurseries and transplant them in degraded forest lands. This allows them take care of their environment.

Long-Term Impact

Through restoration of degrade forest lands, a lot will be achieved in terms of restoring habitat for wild animals, increase in water volumes for many rivers originating from the forest, improved weather patterns, increase in rainfall in the area and availability of forest products for community depending on the forest.
