Pachamama Alliance Kenya
We plant trees, like here. Tree nurseries if we start even now and open them up to the members of the community. These people surrounding us will come running to buy tree seedlings from us. In that way, we will start receiving money/income. We can approach it as an income-generating activity.
We create awareness and answer questions on environmental conservation.
We train youth, women, and school-going children as well.
Conducting awareness training before learned professionals is no joke. Trees are also used as housing materials as well as control and care for wildlife. In this way, we stand to benefit from tourist visits to animal parks.
