Our first planting season has successfully concluded, marking a significant first step towards our reforestation goals. With 150 hectares of land now teeming with new life, this accomplishment showcases the potential impact of collective action. Behind the scenes, our nurseries are bustling with activity, nurturing seedlings for our second planting season.

As we prepare for the next planting season, we're also in the last stage of the process of receiving certification from Verra, showcasing the project’s high standards of environmental integrity and sustainability. 

The essence of the Hongera Reforestation Project lies in its holistic approach to environmental conservation and community empowerment. By targeting areas in Kenya marred by logging, agricultural clearance, and other forms of environmental degradation, we're not just planting trees—we're sowing the seeds of a greener future. Our efforts extend beyond reforestation, aiming to enhance water security, protect biodiversity, and uplift the quality of life for local communities.

The project has become a cornerstone for economic revitalisation, offering employment, training, and valuable resources to local farmers. With agriculture as a lifeline for many in the region, our initiative ensures that the fruits of our labour directly benefit those farmers. Through these endeavours, we're fostering a sustainable future where communities thrive in harmony with nature.

The successful completion of our first planting season is a leap towards fulfilling our ambitious 41-year vision. This project is more than a mission; it's a pledge to future generations, ensuring the preservation and enhancement of our planet's natural splendour.

We invite you to stay updated on the progress of the Hongera Reforestation Project as we continue to write chapters on restoration and renewal. Together, we can forge a legacy of environmental stewardship, demonstrating the power of unity in creating a sustainable and vibrant future for all.
