Why plant in Kenya?
Kenya is one of the least-forested countries in Africa, with only 7% tree cover. Forest loss has led to reduced biodiversity, droughts, flash floods, crop failures, and more. All of these are exacerbated by climate change.
ITF works with community partners across Kenya to plant trees and restore degraded lands. What’s more, we aim to increase tree cover across the country in a way that is useful to local communities, giving them the means to improve their lives and prosper.
We at ITF believe that successful and sustainable tree planting depends on community involvement. Which is why all our projects are designed and run by local groups – community members solving their own landscape issues, while empowering those most vulnerable in society.
