In 2019 The Word Forest Organisation set up a women’s empowerment group called ‘The Mothers of the Forest’ to help the women of the Bore, Kenya community who plant and tend to our new trees helping them reach maturity. A £120 donation will help a woman in our Mothers of the Forest group feed her family for a whole year, as well as pay for her two monthly lessons with meals for the whole year too. She won’t have to resort to charcoal burning to make enough money to survive, and she will plant 48 trees as well!
The Word Forest Organisation plant trees, build schools, facilitate education & support women’s empowerment in rural Kenya. Word Forest believes the best way to ensure the health, well-being and protection of the new fast-growing forests is by applying a holistic approach, investing in the people who are tending the trees.
