Trees and Forests
One of Kenya’s chief environmental concerns is deforestation. At present, less than one quarter of the land remains forested, and an estimated 19 square miles of forest are lost each year. Imbako promotes tree planting activities in neighboring farms, houses, schools and public institutions.
Under the umbrella of the “Plant a tree for your school” initiative, Imbako partners with organizations to promote tree planting in local neighborhoods. The partnerships enable donors to give computers which are used to train local schools, which promote tree planting. As an incentive to undertake the initiative, participants will be eligible to receive computer training, and computers for their schools. This will help bridge the technological gap that exists between the urban and rural communities, and help educate the youth.See current projects in Environment
