echoed his words and promised to accord us their full support and collaboration.
Our Donors got a chance to learn and interact with the work we have done on the ground in line with land restoration and soil health through Agroforestry. They had a chance to visit the project’s participants at their farms and visit KEFRI Kitui where we build the capacity of the participants on Agroforestry.
