Kagoech Foundation Trust (KFT) established in 2007, is a non-profit organization that participates and provides strategic assistance to grassroots community activities to improve their livelihoods by focusing on development, governance, environmental and resource management for improvement of livelihoods.
To address the wider worsening socio-economic and environmental challenges affecting the society.
Kagoech Foundation Trust’s (KFT) main objective underscores the improvement of livelihoods of rural communities through environmental conservation, women and youth empowerment. Precisely our mission is to mobilize the Kenyan people to take concrete and realizable action towards improvement of livelihoods through sustainable environmental conservation and development. Thus, apart from alleviating rural poverty, KFT aims at contributing to a secure socio-economic development, ecological stability and sound environmental management among the target rural communities.
The Foundation’s strategy of approach realizes that the forests and the allied natural resources are a crucial aspect of climate change mitigation, and the way to go is to undertake sustained a forestation and reforestation programs while promoting Agro-forestry and alternative livelihood options, alternative energy sources, efficient charcoal burning methods, and also involve the forest dependent rural communities in forests and natural resource management through proper and institutional framework that recognizes and defines their role.
The ultimate goal of the above strategic approach, is to enable the rural communities realize the benefits from REDD+ activities which require their participation and involvement in forests and the allied natural resource management. In the foregoing KFT intends to build the capacities of the rural communities to help them adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and also help identify and implement viable livelihood options, hence encourage the sustainable use of the natural resources under REDD+ mechanisms.
