Kenya, Africa

In 2009, WorldLife started its first pilot reforestation project in Kenya, East Africa. The entire reforestation was accomplished with a daily temperature between 48 and 54 degrees Celsius, and without irrigation. Between 2009 and 2015, a desert area of 100 hectares was transformed into a beautiful, healthy, and fertile green area. 

This agro forest project resulted in:

  • 44.000 healthy indigenous trees

  • Return of organic agricultural areas 

  • Return of natural resources including natural resources for food production 

  • Return of indigenous plants & flowers
