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!

Reforestation By The Next Generation Fund

Reforestation By The Next Generation Fund
We believe that a healthy ecosystem and thriving biodiversity are essential for every community. We are all a part of this quest and in Tanzania, we have started a reforestation project to contribute to this objective. Desertification is a big issue in the area. It is caused mostly by human activity and lack of alternative practices when it comes to agriculture. Soil erosion worsens every year, and contributes to lower farming outcomes, and an increase in the annual floodings from the nearby river which have destroyed homes and crops. Local schools and leaders of the area have started working on a Tree planting project to mitigate these issues. Their idea is that tree-planting is a sustainable solution to these problems that will contribute to a healthier environment. We want to support them and help accelerate this initiative that will also contribute to our global environmental challenges. The plan: more than 10,000 trees will be grown by students of a local Secondary School and transplanted along the riverbank and throughout the community. The students have set up an environmental club that is coordinating these efforts, supported by their teachers, and have already started working. One tree at a time, the students are reforesting the area! On the side, awareness campaigns in the community will be conducted so that this initiative is appreciated and cared for by everyone who will benefit from it. You can join us!
