Kakamega Village Arboretum Project

Date grant awarded: January 12, 2019

Kakamega Village Arboretum project conserves endangered and threatened tree species by propagating them in a village botanical garden. This garden will be used as a learning tool for students from the neighboring schools as well as the community at large.

By opening this Village Arboretum, it will help to cultivate a culture of conservation in the youth and in the wider community. People tend to love what they know, and this is a perfect opportunity to raise awareness hence allow people to freely participate in conservation initiatives.
