Mother Earth Network was formed to address environmental issues in Kenya by creating awareness, capacity building and conservation through tree planting. The group is a network of different organizations and institutions with environmental concerns. It is a faith-based organization that works closely in inter-faith relations to strengthen environmental conservation among different faiths in Kenya. Cooperation Circle (CC) members synergize efforts of religious groups through their tenets and spiritual beliefs to care for creation. So far, they have planted trees in schools and slum areas, as well as carried out capacity building workshops with youth and women. They have formed partnerships and collaborated with various like-minded organizations and groups, and also established a faith-based National Environment Day to be celebrated in Kenya on October 4th every year. Their plans for the future include expanding their tree planting and conservation initiatives to the neighboring countries of Uganda and Tanzania, as well as contributing to achieve the vision of increasing forest cover from two percent to ten percent.
