Our mission is to combat soil degradation and poverty in Kenya's drylands by enabling farmers to invest in reforestation using drought-resistant indigenous tree species.
Nutrition through food forests & gardens in Kenya

Families in rural drylands are some of the most marginalized and malnourished on earth. They endure drought, deforestation, and food insecurity--all of which are exacerbated by climate change. We work with smallholder farming families to address these challenges by establishing food forests and kitchen gardens. These help to restore their land and feed their families, as well as provide the saplings, training and tools that they will benefit them for the rest of their lives. project reportread updates from the field

Of all the trees the DNRC plants in rural Kenya, Moringa oleifera holds the most potential as a food source to address nutritional deficiencies and improve the health of our farmers and their families. Moringa can also be processed and sold in local and export markets as a source of income for the community. Help us to plant 5,000 more Moringa trees, increase the amount of Moringa our farmers consume, and increase farmer revenue from the sale of our new processed Moringa powder product. project reportread updates from the field

Kenya's drylands are facing high rate of deforestation, more frequent drought, food insecurity and environmental degradation. To compensate for lost yields and income, the inhabitants are cutting down more trees for charcoal burning for sale without planting more trees. We are addressing this vicious cycle by working with the small scale farmers to provide them with appropriate drylands tree seedlings and the support they need to sustainably restore their degraded land project reportread updates from the field
