To empower the local communities and rally them to conserve forests in Kenya, Green Belt Movement plans to initiate a rehabilitation project within the Mt Kenya ecosystem. The aim of this project is to restore degraded areas to improve the environment and ultimately better the livelihoods of the local communities.
Engage over 181 Green Belt Movement community groups in 42 networks to reach directly 3,545 people and at least 20,000 indirectly. Contribute towards planting over 125,000 trees in the project period.
Through restoration of the environment, at least 50,000 people will benefit directly from improved access to firewood, food and clean water by the end of the project period.
