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 raise $10,000 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 Increasing biodiversity Climate change adaptation and mitigation Improving ecosystems services Conservation and creation of fauna habitat Improving the health and nutrition of vulnerable rural households Sustainable Livelihoods 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!
