Welcome

We've put some pages up about where we've come from, where we are and where we're going.

We also have an active Mbales Trees Programme Twitter account, which we recommend that you follow us on for the latest news and events.

 

As we develop them our other social media sites will be accessible through the icons on the header bar of the screen.

Our vision:

Healthy, safe and prosperous communities in the Mount Elgon region.

Our mission:

To enable individuals and communities to see the benefits of growing trees -

  • To mitigate the effects of climate change.

  • To provide sustainable supplies of fuel.

  • To provide shelter and food.

  • To alleviate poverty for today and for future generations.

Our objectives:

  • To plant 10 million trees in the Mount Elgon Region.

  • To manage tree stocks effectively and efficiently through the nursery bed operators network.

  • To monitor and track accurately the distribution of trees planted.

  • To undertake other climate and poverty alleviation initiatives as resources become available.

METGE promotes Agroforestry:

  • It restores the tree habitat destroyed by degradation activities.

  • It improves the condition of soil.

  • It provides sustainable shelter, fuel and food for rural communities.

  • It contributes to the absorption of carbon dioxide and reduces the impact of climate change.

  • It stabilizes the soil and aids water retention.

  • It helps control the effects of landslides in the long term.

  • It creates biodiversity and ecosystem development.

  • It is a suitable habitat for rearing bees, producing quality food products and medicinal honey.
