About Us

Learn about our organization.

Our aim  is to create awareness of the negative impact of climate change and biodiversity loss on various communities

At Kajulu CFA, we promote sustainable management and conservation of forests by empowering local communities to manage and protect their own natural  resources.

Our approach recognizes the critical role local communities play in sustainable forest management and conservation by demonstrating how community-led projects contribute to environmental conservation.

We advocate for initiatives that enhance protection of Forest and Riparian Land, enhance restoration of the Kajulu ecosystem, promote nature based solutions meant to improve the livelihood of the communities, protection of surface water resources e.g. Springs, Shallow wells, ponds and enhance accessibility and availability to proper management of infrastructure.

Our Story
