Strong Roots-CX SP EMEAR Forest Fund
Leveraging on our strong roots, CX SP EMEAR has set a Big Hairy Ambitious Goal: To plant not just 10, 20 or 100 trees, we want to create a forest! In partnership with One Tree Planted, we are targeting to create a forest in Kitui. For every $1 you donate 1 tree gets planted.
This project in Kitui, Kenya, is more than a mission to off-set carbon emissions, it is about empowering a community. We deliberately chose this project due to the potential far-reaching impact it will have not just on the environment but more so on the community as well. Your donation will benefit the environment and community in the following ways:
Improved soil fertility
Protecting crops and livestock from extreme weather events
Restoring degraded lands
Improving water conservation
Prevention of soil erosion
Increasing tree cover
Climate change adaptation and mitigation
Improving ecosystems services
Conservation and creation of fauna habitat
Improving the health and nutrition of vulnerable rural households
Increasing the levels of Income per household
Women empowerment and gender equality on natural resource management
Increasing crop productivity and food security
Fuel wood provision in situ
Rescuing local and traditional ethno-botanical uses such as medicine
Shade provision for livestock and humans
Improve access and quality of diverse ecosystem services
Help us impact this community for generations to come! Give today and tell a friend.
