Challenge

Of late,the communities have been faced with prolonged droughts, which have claimed many lives; livestock and human beings, especially in Eastern Province, Parts of Rift Valley Province,North Eastern Provinces.And this has been as a result of deforestation practices of the Kenya's government forests.Notably,Kenya;s forests currently stands at 2.7% contrary to 10% as required by the UN council.This has been followed by so much rains in some parts; as a result of global warming.

Solution

By training farmers on planting trees;10% of their farms under forest cover.We will train 1000 trainers, who will in turn train over 500,000 other trainers; hence aiming at 3,000,000 farmers country wide.

Long-Term Impact

There shall be no droughts in the country.Over 5 million farmers will be trained on agroforestry practices and over 50,000,000 trees will be planted, hence bringing Kenya to 10% forest cover.
