Mentorthon environment

Kenya loses an average of 12,600 hectares per year of forest cover due to human settlement and illegal logging, with the country having lost five per cent of its forest cover between 1990 and 2005(World Bank 2017).

As a result, this has made Kenya one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate change and food insecurity.

In line with Kenyan government’s goal of planting 235 million trees and achieving 15 per cent forest cover by 2022 Mentorthon environment aims to plant over 10,000 tress annually and improve forest cover especially in Mentorthon focused areas.
