Rooted In Hope’s mission was designed to meet the needs of both the environment and the communities that depend on it. To date, Rooted In Hope has planted over 100,000 trees, improved food security and climate resilience for hundreds of smallholder farmers through the use of drip irrigation, educated over 5,000 students, trained women in several rural villages, and employed hundreds of local laborers. While the majority of projects have been conducted in Kenya, Rooted In Hope also has projects in the United States, Central America, and other parts of Africa.
Rooted In Hope fostered early partnerships with conservation organizations such as the Green Belt Movement and Kenya Wildlife Service, and continues to build alliances with government agencies, international NGOs, community-based organizations, and volunteer groups to carry out international projects.
