DNRC FORESTRY TRAINING & FINANCE PROGRESS REPORT

By nicholas M. Syano | CEO & Founder

Introduction

Greetings from DNRC family. We continue to smoothly implement our social, economic and environmental activities because of your faithful support. We say thank you so much for partnering with us in our mission of promoting sustainable development of natural resources of the drylands region of Kenya in order to bring about improved livelihoods of peoples living there. In the last 3 months, we continued to implement different activities at our tree Nursery program, training/outreach program and administration program. The highlights is that through outreach program, we were able to recruit more 50 farmers, propagated 35,000 tree seedlings and trained 500 farmers on tree pruning. Below are detailed activities accomplished during the 3 months period in both the nursery and training and outreach programs.

Tree Nursery program

Our target for the year is to propagate 60,000 diversified tree seedlings which are both indigenous and high value exotic trees. Besides continuous watering of the existing tree seedlings, the nursery team potted and raised 35,000 tree seedlings during the quarter. (See attached pictures of the same)

Training / outreach program

This program entails, recruiting, training and follow ups of the small scale farmers we are working with. During the 3 months period, we recruited 50 new farmers, making a total of 500 current farmers working with DNRC. The farmers were trained in sustainable tree pruning for firewood and green charcoal production. (See attached pictures). The farmers have been actively involved in planning the bi-annual get together scheduled to take place on 10/06/2016.

Challenges

Dry season starting hence water problem for the tree nursery. We are digging shallow well to help solve this problem.

Focus the next quarter

  • Watering the existing tree seedlings
  • Potting and propagating more tree seedlings
  • Training of new and old farmers on different tree management and planting as they prepare to plant trees on October-December rainy season.
