We appreciate your interest in helping and supporting us. Donations of all kind are important for us to accomplish our mission. Thank you!
Donate Your Time
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities from one week up to one month. Volunteers will live and work with the communities. They will help in the nurseries, planting and supporting the community itself by teaching and training community relevant knowledge.
Your donation helps however small – every dollar counts. You can donate towards one of our specific programs:
You can support our work by contributing to our tree planting activities.
$ 1 will help to grow 3 trees
$ 100 will help to grow 300 trees
$ 1000 will help to grow 3000 trees
Our community members are planting trees on farms and forest lands around Mount Kenya. Above costs include: germinating and management of seedlings in the nursery, out planting and after planting management.
Support women to acquire energy efficient cookstoves
Women are the most vulnerable members of the Kenyan community. You can support them to acquire an energy saving cookstove which is fuelwood efficient, smokeless and reduce cases of respiratory related diseases.
$ 20 will purchase 1 energy cookstove
$ 200 will purchase 10 energy cookstoves
In return, every beneficiary who receives a cookstove will plant 20 trees on her farm to offset her and her supporters carbon footprint. The trees to be planted on the farm will generate benefits to the family; they will include: agroforestry trees, fruit trees, medicinal trees and fodder trees.
Adopt a tree nursery
You can adopt a whole tree nursery with 10,000 tree seedlings. The adoption support includes purchasing of seeds and nursery equipments, all cost for raising seedlings, management and out planting.

The adopted tree seedlings will be donated to schools. The organization will educate pupils and students on the importance of trees and as practical action tree seedlings will be planted.
Support the development of an agroforestry training manual
Mount Kenya Environmental Conservation is working to develop an agroforestry training manual to help local farmers and students. The manual will offer a broad overview of important agroforestry topics: choosing the best trees to plant, seed collection, storage and germination, tree nursery establishment, management, out planting and after planting management, agroforestry techniques trainings, sustainable land uses practices, fuel efficient techniques, integrated pest management and composting.
$ 3 will provide one farmer or school pupil with a copy of the agroforestry training manual
Donating goods and services is a great way to support our work. Please contact us before you donate any goods, for example we need nursery equipment like: polythene bags, watering cans, irrigations systems, wheelbarrows etc.
You are looking for a useful present for a loved one or to celebrate life’s special milestones, such as weddings and anniversaries? You would like to dedicate a donation “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone? Once you selected the program to be supported and the full donation is made, we will finalize the dedication by sending you a personal certificate. For an additional cost we can also send updates every 3 months about the progress of the supported program.
