Why care

The forests of Kenya is threatened by overexploitation, illegal logging and resource degradation, which is causing erosions, dramatic flooding and devastating loss of biodiversity. As the trees disappear the effects of climate change become more apparent and we must therefore conserve the forests that we have, and restore what’s been damaged.

Impacter in action

Their work

Michael is the Founder and CEO of Miti Alliance Ltd.

  • Michael and Miti Alliance work with volunteers to inspire and teach people, young and old, to take responsibility for the environment, caring for it and conserving it.

  • Teach and train young students in primary schools how to plant and care for trees by teaching them how to set up a tree nursery and care for the seedlings until they are transplanted.
