Building Communities Resilient to climate change

We are the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we are the last generation that can do something about it." -- Jay Inslee

We identify.

Challenges to efficient environmental management and conservation through engagement, interaction and observation, and explore ways of solving them while exploring opportunities that may further the objective.

We design.

Systems and programs that best serve to solve the challenge and tap the opportunities, with the help of a team of able project designers. Every project is developed with keen interest on productivity and sustainability.

We Advocate.

For meaningful, progressive and sustainable policies that uphold environmental management and conservation best practice, cushion local communities from environmental exploitation while supporting them for sustainability against climate change.

One vision Kenya is a youth led organization that works towards environmental conservation and management.

We design and implement projects towards socio-economic development of local communities, with a focus on advocacy, environmental education, sustainable utilization and management of natural resources.



Thematic Areas

Environmental Management and Conservation

We ideate, design and develop policies, programs, and campaigns around environmental management and conservation, through partnership and collaboration with relevant stakeholders, so that individuals and organizations may understand, appreciate and be involved with management and conservation as a way of life for its benefits today and into the future.

Waste Management and Entrepreneurship.

We create models for sustainable waste management, develop and drive policies around waste management and disseminate entrepreneurial skills through which young people may generate income through environmental management and conservation-based enterprises.

Leadership.

Through training and mentorship, we purpose to nurture a generation of young leaders who will be nature stewards and whose ideas and actions will further environmental management and conservation in their communities.

Programs

We run environmental management and conservation projects, in collaboration, partnership, and cooperation with local communities and government institutions.

Greening the mind

Greening the Mind (GTM) nurtures nature stewards in building community resilience to climate change. The program promotes sustainable environmental practices through capacity building in schools and communities. It works to enhance the participation of school-going children and youth in environmental restoration. This is to enhance nutrition security in the working regions while providing them with alternative economic opportunities. With a focus on local communities, GTM provides a platform for environmental advocacy and for farmers to benefit from environmental education and learn values, skills, behaviors and lifestyles that can lead to job creation, improve food security and contribute to environmental sustainability.

REEGREENING AFRICA-KENYA PROJECT.

Regreening Africa with Trees is an ambitious five-year program that seeks to reverse land degradation among 500,000 households, and across one million hectares in eight countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This program supports the Government of Kenya’s commitment to restore 5.1 million hectares of land as part of the Bonn Challenge and the Africa Forest Landscape Initiative (AFR100), and 10% tree cover as outlined in the Constitution. Regreening Africa with trees in Kenya aims to reverse land degradation through trees on 150,000 hectares of land and contribute to food security for some 50,000 households by 2022. The program will support mind-set change and incentives for practicing evergreen agriculture, enhancing farmer access to quality tree seedlings, and strengthening farmer access to markets information services and profitable market participation around tree-based value chains. led by World Vision Kenya with technical support from ICRAF, the project will reach households through:
• Lead farmers as community change agents.
• School environmental clubs, churches and community groups.
• Model sites and exchange learning events.
