Tackling Climate Change by Planting Trees in Kenya

Tackling Climate Change by Planting Trees

Signpost International is committed to addressing the issues of climate change in all areas of our work. This ranges from using environmentally friendly products at our offices in Scotland to planting trees in Kenya to promote climate change awareness and to off-set any carbon emissions caused by the project.

In partnership with CICR (Centre for Indigenous Child Rights), the community of Tunoyo received tree seedlings to plant in their new tree nursery alongside awareness training on climate change and how to care for the seedlings.

This follows on from the women’s income-generating enterprise project and the installation of a borehole for the whole community. The access to safe, clean water not only provides water for drinking, cleaning and cooking but also helps ensure that crops and tree seedlings have the best chance of survival.

Helping to reach Kenya’s goal of 15 billion trees by 2032.

This initiative with CICR has come at the same time as the Kenyan government granting a national days holiday for every Kenyan to plant two free seedlings in an effort to plant 15 billion trees by 2032, to tackle climate change and issues of deforestation. You can read the full article here.
