The Kesho Trust

The Kesho Trust

The Kesho Trust works to build community based understanding and action that strengthens the interrelationships between people and the natural environment.

Here are some current activities in our active projects.

mikumi 050 cPECC (Promoting Environmental Conservation and Cooperation)
Representatives of each of the community groups are now preparing for an important visit to Dar to talk with key conservation stakeholders. This will help committee members to gain more knowledge about conservation policies and strategies and help them appreciate the variety of conservation strategies being applied in Tanzania.  The visits will also connect them to a wider network of organizations and people working in conservation.

mikumi 112 cKihembe Environmental Learning Centre
Kesho Trust and SANA are working to establish a formal management agreement.  We are also planning initial facilities for the site to begin to establish a presence and promote the centre’s future development.  We are planning a major fundraising campaign this year to raise funds for construction.
