Drylands Natural Resources Centre

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.
Forestry Training & Finance for 600 Farms in Kenya
For the last 7 years, DNRC has been working with smallholders in Kenya's drylands to break the vicious cycle of high rate of deforestation, more frequent drought, food insecurity and environmental degradation. DNRC is working with 450 farmers in tree planting. Over 500k trees have been planted and farmers are realizing some financial benefits like sale of moringa powder and firewood .We aim to increase this current farmers to 600 and to plant extra 300k trees. project reportread updates from the field
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
Moringa to support Kenyan farmers health & wealth
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
