Women planting trees on the project receive a decent wage and in time the harvest of timber provides a further cash benefit to the community which can be used to either buy food or pay for school fees
The project is located in Boré, Coast Province, Kenya - an area of Africa that is becoming increasingly dry due to climatic changes
Trees grow all year round in the Tropics, rapidly absorbing carbon from the air and converting it into useful and valuable construction timber
The species planted are drought resistant Neem like these that can withstand long dry periods and once established, create shade and reduce soil erosion
After only a few years, a Neem like this can be sold to cover a years' school fees for this little one - and we are planting over 12,500 of them
