The Auerbach Family Foundation
With support from the Auerbach Family Foundation, GBM is able to mobilize commmunity participation in environmental conservation by using tree-planting as the entry point in the Machakos constituency of Kenya. GBM communities in this area planted 9,000 trees in 2009 on both public and private lands.
The objectives of this project include:
1. Increase community participation in the management of natural resources
2. Build capacity in communities to manage their local resources
3. Tree-planting and protection of existing forests
The Machakos District is located in the Eastern Province of Kenya.
