Through the provision of secondary school scholarships, A Rocha Kenya’s Arabuko-Sokoke Schools and Ecotourism Scheme (ASSETS) meets the economic and social needs of the local community, whilst promoting the conservation of two of Africa’s most important ecosystems. Students and their parents are taught about the value of their natural environment and are involved in practical conservation activities. Every year, more than 10,000 native trees are planted during the rainy season in schools and in identified areas within the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest.
By planting trees, the beneficiaries can actively help to restore degraded areas of the threatened dry coastal forest ecosystem. They can help improve the local soil and water quality and they can help provide a safe habitat for wildlife.
