We are restoring >300 thousand hectares of land

Together with millions of farmers and pastoralists, we are restoring >300 thousand hectares of dry, degraded land. Bringing back vegetation has lots of positive effects on the climate, on the environment and biodiversity, on people and their livelihoods.

We brought back 9.7 million trees in 4 years

Through our work, these forgotten tree stumps are brought back by using a technique called Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR), or – as we like to call it: Kisiki Hai. This is more effective than planting new trees!

By regenerating those trees, we are able to restore the degraded areas and make these areas green and cool again.

We dug over 200 thousand bunds

Bunds (or as we like to call them: “earth smiles”) are semi-circular shaped pits that capture rainwater.

They are dug in our project areas in Africa in order to capture rainwater that will otherwise get washed away over the dry, barren soil. By digging bunds, we can regreen a large area in a very short amount of time, benefiting biodiversity, nature, people and – eventually our climate.

Inspire, unite & activate

If you want to make a global change, you need to be everywhere: news, ads, social channels, conversations, and above all in people’s hearts and minds. To do this, we use the power of media and communications, to build awareness and understanding and to show that together we can have a positive and significant impact on climate change.

Our global online and offline awareness campaigns are developed to promote nature-based solutions and to inspire, unite and activate an entire generation and grow a landscape restoration movement.

Within our grass seed banks, Maasai women grow, harvest, and sell grass (hay) and seeds. They make an income by selling them on local markets or to organizations. The grass seed banks form an oasis of green in the barren surroundings, and the hay the women harvest is food for their livestock in dry seasons.

In total we have 8 grass seed banks in Kuku and OOGR, Kenya.

Our values

  • Thinking in solutions
  • Personal communication
  • Regreening is done together

By thinking in solutions we see at what can be done about climate change, instead of focusing on everything that is going wrong.
