Protection of the Enviroment

Uncontrolled clearing of existing forests is among the major causes of environmental degradation in Tanzania. 

MIBOS encourages and promotes preservation of the environment, by the community, through Awareness Training and also by providing various species of tree seedlings for schools, gardens, plantations, refugee affected areas, around houses and on bare hills and on the plains. 

Through support from CONCERN, UNWFP and local Community Members, the organization is running Environmental Conservation Activities in 46 villages in the Kigoma urban and rural areas. 

We have, so far, trained 230 facilitators and set up committees of about 25 people in these villages. We provide those communities with tree seedlings. 

MIBOS has established several tree nurseries, in which we nurture different species of tree from seeds including: ornamental, fencing, agro forestry, fruit bearing, windbreakers, fuel wood, medicinal and other species of trees.
