Why Donate Trees

for Kenteng Village?

Water is one of the essential elements of human life.

However, every year when the dry season comes, Kenteng Village in Kebumen Regency, Central Java, Indonesia always experiences a drought. It causes most villagers to have difficulty accessing clean water. They have to go to the nearest springs that are about two kilometers away.

Kenteng village is also prone to landslides, marked by the occurrence of landslides in 2017 that triggered a flood. Around 35 families were affected and relocated, houses, a chicken farm, and a mosque were destroyed, and dozens of livestock perished. To this day, there has been no strategy yet for the environment to prevent landslides recurrent.

Trees4Trees invites you to do good on #GivingTuesday by DONATING TREES trees to help Kenteng villagers plant 20.000 trees to maintain water sources and prevent landslides. The trees will also empower local farmers to improve their livelihood through higher-value tree yields.

US$ 1.00 for 1 tree, you can make an impact!

Trees will be planted during our planting season from December 2022 to February 2023 in local farmers’ lands around:

Springs in the village to maintain the availability of water from drying out in the dry season.

Gunardi Kenteng Village Secretary

Drought comes about in several areas of our village every year during the dry season. If drought occurs in just two months, water is hard to come by. The villagers hope they can plant trees that can increase the availability of water, as well as get the result from trees they plant to improve their livelihoods.

Rokhimin Farmer Group Leader of Kenteng Village

In our village, there are many landslide-prone areas. What we have to face every year is when the dry season comes, our village is threatened with water shortages in some areas. In the rainy season, our village is threatened with landslides in some other areas.

Arif Villager of Kenteng Village

In the dry season, I have to queue to the closest spring from 10 PM to 3 AM just to get two jugs of clean water. The hope is our village can be planted with tree species that can capture and hold a lot of water so we do not have to experience drought or lack of clean water in the future
