A Measurable Effect

How exactly is our effect measurable?

We have an unparalleled quantification system that includes trained quantifiers and third-party audits.

However, the immeasurable effects are even more rewarding and go beyond the data to the very lives of TIST participants.

Watch TIST Women Transform their Communities

This video features the women of TIST Kenya, who number more than 25,000.

The TIST reforestation program has now reached more than over 12,000 small groups with 90,000 members (almost half of whom are women) and over 18 million trees planted and alive!

And counting...

Local Farmers Make it all Possible

The real credit for the outstanding results of this program belongs to the local subsistence farmers who collect indigenous seeds, make nurseries, plant seedlings, and keep them alive through droughts, floods, cattle and goat raids and rogue elephants. TIST farmers are proud of the benefits their trees are having on their lives and on the global environment.
