MBARUK-NGORIKA WATER SPRINGS REHABILITATION [CHAMKA DAM]

With increase in global warming, pollution and increase human encroachment on key water shed points and areas means that most rivers will completely dry or greatly reduce in volume if urgent measures are not taken.
Mbaruk-Ngorika water springs, locally known by community as Chamuka dam is among those key water source that is under threat from human encroachment. Soysambu conservancy took the initiative to avert the situation and conducted environmental awareness to the said community and oversees the uprooting of eucalyptus trees around the source which were replaced by 1000 indigenous trees donated by Prince Sadruddin Agha Khan Fund for Environment through Africa Forest courtesy of Soysambu Conservancy. The exercise that took place on 29th June 2013 was also witnessed by MBAWRUA (Mbaruk Water Resource Users Association)
The follow up on 7th July 2013 indeed confirmed the endless effort to conserve the environment, the seedlings were thriving very well and the community had taken full responsibility on protecting them. Below happy community members standing along the river channel where we planted the seedlings.
