Project description: Books for Trees is a project creating awareness of the consequences of deforestation. In the highlands – like the rest of Kenya – there is a massive lack of trees. The extensive deforestation already begun under British colonial rule has led to the fact that now only 2.7% of the land area is wooded. The mission is to make trees attractive as a source of income and to anchor trees, as components of rituals, in the tradition of the population of the parish of Ololkirikirai in Kenya.
