Kenya Afforestation Project
There was a study which found that the world’s forests play an important role in climate change. Forest helps in vacuuming up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) and storing the carbon in wood. That helps in regulating CO2 concentrations in atmosphere and keeps the planet from overheating.
Bearing in mind this fact that our world needs more trees and plantations, ICA Japan works with numerous partners in planting deserted lands. ICA Japan is working together with ERCA, JIFPRO, and Cope Kenya on demo afforestation project in Kenya. We are conducting the project in several locations, including Loiyangalani, Ngoni Primary School, Serima Village, Nagan Village, and Kiwanjya Village.
This project is a community-based project which involves the community and students around the area. We are not only giving the seedlings, water, or equipment but we also educate them in order to maintain the sustainability of this project. Now students and women can grow their own trees.
We have seen great development throughout each location. We will successfully transform the deserted lands into green areas. Thus, we are looking forward to grow more plants in other areas and also engage broader communities to work hand-in-hand with us.
