My Name is Prisca, I am 78 years old and live on Rusinga Island in Kenya. I help to care for my grandchildren

Eight years ago Kageno taught me to plant trees on my property as part of their “Greening Rusinga Initiative”.

My wood lot is now mature and young people come and pay to cut wood for houses and I harvest twigs and cut some mature trees to sell for firewood. If I manage my trees well they should provide income forever.

Kageno also taught me to make baskets and bags in their craft project and I also earn money selling them.
I am grateful that Kageno works in my community and helped provide me with the skills and opportunity to earn money for my family.
