Trees against erosion
Due to dry years with hardly any rainfall, combined with heavy rainfall in a short period the soil is aggressively washed away. This process is accelerated by cutting trees for charcoal and houses. The population of resident people has grown the last decades and the fight against erosion is still young. We have to teach especially young people to replace trees when wood is harvested; soil which disappeared will not come back by itself. Planting young trees in the wet season is one solution; we can repair the soil-layer in combination with water-control during heavy rainfalls. Every safari will get it’s own donated AWE-tree in the valley where John Sung’are lives.
