Summary

THE MAASAI Center for Regenerative Pastoralism specially the Village Enkutoto Nalalala have invited COMMUNITY CARBON TREES to replicate our groundbreaking model for COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT THROUGH BIODIVERSE REFORESTATION PROJECTS WITH LONG TERM MAINTENANCE. The Maasai people are ready to plant more trees as part of their pastoral lifestyle, especially in light of drought and other symptoms of climate change being experienced in recent years. Yay! We love trees in Kenya!!

Challenge

The Maasai people have experienced extreme drought due to climate change and deforestation. There are no opportunities for employment and the pastoralist lifestyle is no longer supporting the tribes as before. Concern for the environment and for mitigating climate change has inspired the Maasai people to reforest their lands in ways that establish silvopastoral cultural systems that respect their unique culture while creating fair opportunities for employment through growing diverse trees.

Solution

Paying people a fair wage for producing and planting and caring for trees long term including women is good for the community as well as the environment. Establishing new relationships with the land and neighbors requires collaboration and time. The process of producing compost with local women serves the purpose of providing organic fertile soil for the tree nursery as well as for local vegetables. Fair pay tree planting model strengthens community economic and environmental resilience.

Long-Term Impact

Addressing climate change by planting highly diverse mixes of native trees near the Equator is a winning solution for everyone living on Planet Earth. Equator trees sequester tons of carbon dioxide over the 25 year period they are guaranteed through managed long term care and accountability.
