Project Report | Dec 27, 2022
Sharing Trees and Knowledge Throughout Kenya

By Mary McCarthy | Project Development Officer

Thank you to everyone who supported Sadhana Forest Kenya on Giving Tuesday.  We’re always deeply moved to see you showing up for us in all the ways that you do!

Since our last report we have happily received some heavy rainfalls and some much needed relief from the drought.  Our team has been planting trees nearly every day and recently travelled farther afield on two occasions for extended overnight tree planting trips.  With our handy Mobile Reforestation Unit, multiple days were spent working with other semi-nomadic pastoralist communities to implement tree planting and water conservation projects.  What an incredibly positive experience!  Our Samburu team members found it especially meaningful to share their expertise with other communities of Kenya and to receive so much gratitude and positive feedback.  These trips were truly motivating and fun!

Currently, the team is planting many moringa trees closer to our center.  Moringa trees are one of the hardiest species we plant; they have thrived and continued to produce nutritious leaves through intense and prolonged droughts too harsh for many food producing species.  One of the places where planting is taking place is in a home where we planted moringa about four years ago.  Those trees have grown into some of the largest and most productive trees that we have planted so far.

Did you know that gift cards are available on GlobalGiving?  You choose the amount and the recipient gets to choose which charitable organization they’d like to support.  Check it out here: GlobalGiving Gift Cards and give the gift of giving!

 A big thank you to all of our donors, volunteers, and GlobalGiving.   If you would like to provide feedback, learn more about our projects, or if you are interested in volunteering with us, please email us at kenya@sadhanaforest.org. There is also an opportunity to leave a note at the end of this report.

Happy holidays and Ashe Oleng! (“Thank you very much!” in Kisamburu)
