The Kesho Trust

The Kesho Trust supports communities to develop a greater awareness
of the value of protecting the environment while
finding innovative ways to improve
sustainable livelihoods.

We believe in empowerment through partnerships
and we work with local community partners. 

Our work is guided by these important values: small scale;
partnership; community based; facilitation;
exchange of experiences;
and, inclusion.


A world where healthy, strong communities live in harmony with their environment and are instrumental in ensuring that the protected areas and conservation lands they live alongside are thriving and achieving the objectives for which they were established.


To facilitate and support community led activities that foster positive relationships between local communities and the conservation of their protected areas. We work with community organizations and individuals to facilitate and enhance their capacity to achieve long term sustainability of community based conservation and development initiatives.  Activities include direct conservation measures, sustainable community livelihood initiatives and environmental awareness and education.
