Enviromental Conservation

We observe the conservation of enviroment and biodiversity majorly by planting treess and educating both young and old people on the importance of biodiversity.


An inspiring environmental restoration initiative of Mau Forest, one of Kenya’s critical water towers  is underway, spearheaded by the Paran women group. This dedicated collective of Indigenous women has committed themselves to the revitalization of their native lands, which are crucial not only for their communities but for the ecological health of the entire Rift Valley region.Their efforts are supported by TerraMatch, a platform linking reforestation projects with funders, under the larger umbrella of the AFR100 initiative.The activities of the Paran women group are multifaceted, ranging from reforestation to educating the local community about sustainable land use practices. By planting trees, they not only restore the degraded land but also create a buffer that helps protect the intact areas of the forest. These efforts are instrumental in preserving the biodiversity of the region, which includes numerous species of flora and fauna unique to the area.

World Resource Institute, and One Tree Planted are our our  partners in this initiative of restoring Mau Forest
