Environmental conservation

In Kenya people and the environment are often trapped together in a downward spiral. Penury of natural resources forces the less privileged to consume the few resources available for them. The result is deeper poverty, depleted soils, deforestation, polluted water, diseases and despair. This is the current conflict pitting the government of Kenya and environmentalist on one hand and communities living around MAU forest on the other hand. MAU forest is Kenya’s most important water tower. Volunteers will do environmental education and capacity development and also help raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage people to manage change in the best interest of the community. The volunteer will work with our staff, local volunteers and environmentalist. Training on environment is not necessary but the volunteer should be able to understand environmental issues.
