Planting trees as a remedy

Dear friends,

I don't know where you live but we are experiencing unprecedented hot weather and a drought is upon us in the US. In Kenya, this has been an ongoing threat to life and health for a while. Around the world, people cut down trees for use in building and casket making, and the limbs are used as firewood. Unless trees are planted to replace the loss, the stripping of trees from the environment creates larger issues.

Trees are not just a resource, but they mean clean air, water, shade and food in Africa. Trees help to conserve soil and water but also reduce the vulnerability of land in drought and climatic stress.

If there is a viable solution, then planting trees is the best. We have been planting moringa trees because they are drought resistant and provide shade and high nutrition food. We may also start planting other drought resistant trees that produce food because we see the need to step up our tree planting and moringa does not grow everywhere.

We thank you for your past donation and always make sure that there is benefit provided for your generosity. It is our intention that we can report back an increase in the health of communities through trees.We believe that a tree planted anywhere helps everyone. 

Thank you,

Taking trees home to families
