Kenya

Vi Agroforestry was established in West Pokot district, Kenya in 1983. Today our Regional office is based in Nairobi and we have a country office in Kitale. We work with farmers' organisations around the Lake Victoria basin (Kitale and Kisumu district) as well as near the Masai Mara conservation areas (Narok county and Bomet county).

Almost 50 million people lives in Kenya and a majority of the population work as small-holder farmers and the most common crops are tea, coffee, fruits and vegetables. Therefore one of the biggest threats to development in Kenya is climate change. Unreliable rainfalls make it difficult for farmers to plan their crops and drought and soil erosion ruin the land and crops fail.

Vi Agroforestry have 3 ongoing projects and 1 overall programme in Kenya. Our work in the country focus on improving the lives of smallholder farmers through agroforestry and by strengthening the capacity of farmer organisations. Our work empower farmer families to reduce poverty, hunger, and deforestation, and contribute to increased biodiversity. Vi Agroforestry is running 2 carbon offsetting projects in Kenya.
