Kenya is an incredibly beautiful place. From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.
We are supporting Eden Reforestation Projects and the local community to replant and protect Kenya’s forest systems.
This project is working in 2 regions of Kenya: the Great Rift Valley and the Lamu County on the Northern Coast.
The Great Rift Valley
In partnership with Kijabe Forest Trust, Eden are helping to support Afromontane reforestation and restoration projects. This provides an essential habitat for wildlife, sustainable economic opportunities for local families, a reliable water supply, and protection from erosion and landslides.
Lamu County, Northern Coast
In partnership with David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, we are helping Eden Reforestation Projects to restore mangrove and coastal forest habitats. This provides employment to those living in extreme poverty, in addition to restoring key habitats that support livelihoods and cultural heritage in Northern Kenya.
