Adopt A tree
Community wellness Africa’s Adopt A tree program has been working in partnership with Green Circle Foundation’s “Young Green Bubbles Club” in conservation and community mobilization for climate change adaptation and mitigation. We aim to impact millions of lives nobly through this initiative.
Community Wellness Africa through its mission, seeks to improve the quality of life of women, youth, children and the elderly in Kenya and Beyond. We are doing this through creating partnerships using creativity, innovation, teamwork, and collaborations for healthier communities in Africa and beyond.
Green Circle Foundation (https://greencirclefoundationafrica.org) is a Non Profit incorporated under the laws of the government of Kenya. It is articulated through the Green Africa village concept where communities undertake a series of activities that result to sustainable environmental conservation and natural resource management, assurance of food security, policy dialogue and advocacy and social integration through peace building, ethical and moral probity.
Green Circle Foundation’s mission is to engage extensively on a multi-faceted sustainable development and climate change action-related activities that would help bridge poverty gap, mitigate climate change and empower the women and youth around the world.
How does adopt a tree work
Adopt A Tree initiative encompasses classroom based set up where a group of a minimum 30 people get a classroom and name their class.
Kindly note that one person can decide to adopt 30 trees without being in a group.
The class represents a group of 30 trees.
The tree species depends on the climate in the particular area.
These trees are planted in designated public and private areas.
Refer to the following articles
The ACMI, which was launched last year at COP 27, aims to generate 300 million voluntary carbon credits per year by 2030 and 1.5 billion credits annually by 2050.
African campaign groups have condemned the initiative as “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”, effectively serving as a “pollution permit” for major emitters.
A report by Powershift Africa found that the ACMI’s growth target would allow big private companies to emit an additional 1.5-2.5 gigatonnes of CO2e (the equivalent of CO2) per year by 2050.

The classroom set up is so that we achieve teamwork, learning, and coordination.
Our model is key in improving the health and quality of our planet through tree planting.
We use a sensor that consist of a base device that will measure the
I) Air humidity.
III) Soil moisture content.
IV) Carbon dioxide.
The module can be extended to handle other signals such as,
– NPK in water.
– NPK in soil.
– Light intensity.
The infrastructure consisting of a sensor module and a communication device that can serve up to 4km radius.
The sensors can be used in a mesh to increase resilience or used as stand alone. The communication stations can be used as edge computing devices to process data as it arrives from the field sensors.
WHO plants and takes care of the trees.
We work with
– street families,
– children homes
– and women.
Who are tasked with planting, looking after and skill based learning.
Our model sets to
- Reduce carbon content in air.
- Actively quantify how much carbon has been reduced on a daily basis.
- Improve the livelihood of the communities where the youth, street families, children homes and women we work with come from
- Make sure a sustainable living through small stipend for youth, street families, children homes and women to enable them cope with stress, shock of this harsh world.
- To enhance the youth, street families, children homes and women capability and assets both now and in future, while not undermining the natural resources base.
- Teach the youth, street families, orphans in children homes and women ideology and technical skills through digital literacy training program adopted in the Adopt A Tree program partnership with KE Learning Center.
Through Adopt A Tree
- We will be able to quantify carbon reduction knowing precisely where we are and how far we need to go to reach our goal of a hundred million ,(100, 000, 000) tons of carbon per year
- We are feeding, and naaturing educating both skillset and ideologically youth, street families, children homes and women in vulnerable situations.
- We are emotionally aiding youth, street families, children homes and women as part of Community Wellness Africa roles.
- We are feeding youth, street families, children homes and women through the planting drive programmers.
Are we dreaming too high, is it achievable?????????!!!!!!!!
Through partnerships, creativity, innovation, technology, teamwork, and partnerships we belive the ozone is the limit.
How do we achieve this,
WE are achieving this through a dollar $1 a tree each month,
“ We do not need interventions, summits, conferences to make an impact. We will make our voices be heard by burying our heads in humility through the soil and like the trees rise up to be seen.
We are the protectors of the ozone and we seek to fashion it back to where it was for a healthier community in Africa, and beyond. Hold our hand, join the classroom, tomorrow is set for me and you. ”
