The sprawling hills of Munyora form part of Bahati forest in Nakuru County. Over the years, wanton destruction of the forest for agricultural practice has dealt a heavy blow to this once thriving ecosystem. Responding to this threat, our tree planting efforts in partnership with Ecosia are gradually and surely changing the tide.

Last year, we planted 130,000 indigenous tree seedlings in this location and achieved over 80% survival rate.

We look forward to restoring this beautiful landscape to it's former glory for the benefit of the many who depend on it's survival. In Professor Maathai's words, "We are called to assist the earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own."
