Where we work
We are building our program in Kenya’s poorest constituency – Ganze District. Here, more than 80% of families rely on subsistence farming but their land does not sustain them. Unreliable rainfall and frequent drought mean that traditional crops often fail and families go hungry. Meanwhile, poverty-driven deforestation threatens to transform the region into a desert.
KOMAZA is starting here because the need is immense.
The challenges are immense too, and we are developing our microforestry model to thrive even in the harshest conditions. Our success in Ganze’s unforgiving climate builds the foundation for scaling across semi-arid Africa, helping families overcome poverty by protecting their environment.
