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 communities living around the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest through the provision of secondary school scholarships and involve them in environmental education and practical conservation activities. The forest is the largest remnant of a dry coastal forest which originally stretched from Somalia to Mozambique and is globally recognized for its rich biodiversity. 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 and their families 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.
