Eva planting
Recently, Eva Jefa, the facilitator of our women's empowerment group, Mothers of the Forest and Esther Kombe, Chair of the Boré Green Umbrella (the cooperative that plants the trees and builds the classrooms we commission), went on a certificated Permaculture Design Course in Meru; they both graduated with flying colours.

We're chuffed to work with some amazing Corporate Partners and the folks at Forest Hog, are exactly that. Like us, they're a young company and they're powered by a small team of passionate environmentalists, led by the eco-powerhouse that is Diana Robinson.
Eva and Esther, Mothers of the Forest
If you pause a moment to reflect on the smiles of Eva (right) our Mothers of the Forest facilitator and Esther, one of the Mothers, you'll see our women's empowerment group has gone from strength to strength. Since February this year, they've been arriving at their twice monthly meetings 2 hours early for lessons. They undertake an hour of Kiswahili and English, and an hour of maths, both provided by local educator, Michael Jefwa.
