The Kilimanjaro Environmental Development Association (KEDA) is an NGO founded by farmers surrounding mount Kilimanjaro in Northern Tanzania. KEDA members are divided into three major categories. The first are founding members who volunteer their money, time and material by visiting farmers in the villages, conducting discussions on problem identification, supporting tree nursery groups and contributing funds for rehabilitation of traditional irrigation canals. The second group is made up of the area farmers, and the third consists of primary and secondary schools where demonstration projects have been constructed.
