More than seven million seedlings have been planted in the water catchment along the eastern slopes of Mount Kenya.

Trees hold rainwater in the soil and keep it flowing to small farmers, who can grow more high-value crops like snow peas for export.

The pilot project has been supported by the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
