Ngare Sero Trust
Ngare Sero Forest Reserve Conservation Program is currently raising money for a few priorities:
The forest reserve perimeter water supply is not complete on the north-west side. Our aim is to complete a pipeline curcuit and build water storage tanks with distribution points where people can collect water. Beneficiaries: Nshupu Village, Nshupu Primary and Secondary Schools, as well as the forest, lake and its wild inhabitants.
Indigenous tree-replanting on the north side of the Ngare Sero forest. Beneficiaries: forest, lake and its wild inhabitants.
Create a cooperative of harvesting croton tree seeds for vegetable oil extraction around mount Meru and Kilimanjaro,
as well as distribution of croton seedlings for replanting and future harvesting. Beneficiaries: growing indigenous croton trees will not only benefit the eco-system of both mountains, which suffered tree chopping due to growth of population. It will also bring another cash crop for local farmers where money goes directly to the community.
Using carbon neutral croton seed oil is an ecological form of fuel for transportation. We hope that our example will inspire similar projects all over Tanzania.
