Stacy and Masai workers!
Please visit our new website at www.africaconservationtrust.org As you will notice we have made alot of progress since our involvement with Global Giving.
Due to the post-election violence in Kenya our project was briefly delayed. However, we are back and we have begun planting out of trees at Lake Magadi. We have undergone restructuring as we press on to make Kenya, and all of East Africa, a vibrant and prosperous place for all.
The Masai have embraced us like family. They are even coming from Tanzania because of our project. Our joint efforts are clearly creating an atmosphere of hope and joy among the Masai.
Having been neglected by their government, and for that matter the world, for so long. I am excited to be apart of a project that will empower Africa's most forgotten and poorest people.
Our next step is to continue planting out of trees, we expect millions and hopefull billions one day. The Magadi area, like much of Sub-Saharan Africa has literally become a desert due to charcoal fuel burning. With your help, we can continue to train the Masai and other rural farmers, we can continue to plant out more trees, we can bring them clean water and solar power, all through your assistance. But most of all, we can continue to help the poorest people in Africa become self-sufficient through environmental conservation.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FOUNDER!
Adam Tuller, Founder and Director, was recently named an Honorary Game Warden by the Kenya Wildlife Service. This is a big boost to our program because Magadi is located on a wildlife reserve. Way to go Adam!
Finally, as an American and a new employee with ACT, I did not understand how growing trees in Africa can benefit anyone? After interacting with the Masai and rural farmers I realized that this program is not just about planting trees, it is about changing lives. When I saw the smiles on the Masai and their children and the eagerness to participate with ACT, I realized, we can actually make a difference in Africa!
Wildlife conservation is a must in Africa!
Children will be the biggest benefactors of our wealth creation
