We are excited to be recruiting a Centenary Campaign Manager based in Nairobi to lead on our most ambitious project to date: 20 Million Trees for Kenya’s Forests.
As we ramp up activities with different communities around Kenya’s key forests, we’re looking for an exceptional project manager to help us achieve the project goals, work with our local partners, develop new partnerships and run activities smoothly.
20 Million Trees for Kenya’s Forests remains close to ITF’s values of working in partnership with community based organisations and listening to local community needs.
Our Centenary Campaign takes a holistic approach to environmental restoration and economic development through three pillars of work. Forest restoration is the first pillar of our approach. With local groups, we aim to restore 20,000 hectares of land in and around the five highland forests.
Agroforestry is the second pillar: improving the livelihoods of 50,000 rural households living close to the forests through planting trees on farms.
The third pillar aims to engage the next generation in environmental stewardship through our programme with school children ‘My 20 Trees and Me – Growing up Together’
The campaign forms part of a wider strategy by the Kenyan government to meet reforestation targets under the COP21 Paris Climate Summit and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
