Teknoflor Partners with Kasigau Corridor Redd Project
Milwaukee, WI, August 24, 2021-This year, Teknoflor is partnering with The Kasigau Corridor Redd Project to support its mission to stop deforestation and help keep forests intact.
Teknoflor provided the organization with 1,000 Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) for its second phase of the project-The Community Ranches.
The Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project protects over 200,000 hectares of dryland forest with over 11,000 wild elephants that live in this ecosystem (2,000+ of those elephants call Rukinga their permanent home). The project provides social programs that impact over 116,000 local people and provides the local community of the Kasigau Corridor region with long-term jobs that replace unsustainable sources of income such as poaching, subsidence agriculture and illegal tree harvesting. Additionally, REDD+ projects empower forest communities by enabling them to build schools, develop jobs, and provide alternatives to the time-consuming task of firewood gathering for daily cooking, most of which falls on women and young girls.
