our work

what we do

The Kesho Trust is a conservation and development organization [see what we do]:

  • Our vision is: 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.
  • Our mission is: 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.

how we work – our strategic plan

In order to achieve our vision of a world where healthy, strong communities live in harmony with their environment, the Kesho Trust has developed strategic aims, principles and policies that guide our work [see our strategic plan]

projects & partnerships

We work through established partnerships as well as in project activity. our partnerships are the backbone of the Kesho Trust because they are the long term commitments that can realize the strengthening of organizations, cooperation and relationships that will endure. The projects are shorter term means whereby we can work on building those partnerships. We are pleased to be developing a strong group of partnerships that are benefiting ourselves and our partners [see partnerships and projects].
