Campaigns 2019!

13 November 2019
movement media

It’s becoming more and more known that nature based solutions are THE way to reverse climate change. To spread this message even faster, we develop positive awareness campaigns. And because we are in a bit of a hurry, we have developed five different campaigns in four different countries this fall! Did you spot them already?

GROUNDbreaking news: Justdiggit’s Regreening platform!

30 September 2019
project movement media

From now on you can invest in a greener and cooler climate by working together with a farmer in Kenya and seeing the result directly. With our new Regreening platform developed in collaboration with our partner DEPT Agency!

By registering on the Regreening platform you can buy your own unique bunds. Bunds – which we also like to call earth smiles – are moon shaped pits that collect rainwater in dry areas. With this you ensure regreening and directly support an African farmer who digs the bunds. A true win-win situation! After digging, you will receive a photo of your bund and regular updates. This way you can follow the regreening closely!

Out of Home advertising

12 August 2019

Some of the Tanzanian villages that practice Kisiki Hai are promoting the regreening method through Out Of Home (or ‚On My Home‘?) advertising.

‚Kijanisha Dodoma Iwe Poa‘ means ‚A greener Dodoma is a cooler Dodoma‘.

Beehive fences?

30 Juli 2019
project

This is a story about elephants, bees and grass seed banks. Sorry? Let’s start this story by telling you that the Maasai women groups are doing a great job in managing the grass seed banks, but have problems with elephants trying to get in the banks. Elephants like to eat the grasses and unfortunately damage the fences. Now, here it comes: By hanging beehives on the fences they will stay away, because elephants are terrified of bees! 

Organization Safe the Elephants came up with this innovative solution! They developed and ensured the funding of the beehive fences for the grass seed banks!

Intermediate training

03 Juli 2019
project

A large part of our champion farmers have reached a new regreening level! They have followed a 5-day intermediate training. And they were eager to learn!

Besides improving their Kisiki Hai skills to bring back trees, the farmers learned about monitoring and evaluating the growing trees, they learned the new techniques Fanya Juu and Fanya Chini and they further developed their leadership and training skills. This allows them to transfer their knowledge of regreening even better to the other farmers!

New movie roadshow

13 Juni 2019
movement documentary

After a successful first movie (that reached 324 villages and about 200,000 people in the Dodoma region in Tanzania), it’s time for a follow-up! We’re going back to the villages in Dodoma with a new road show.

In Kisiki Hai I we introduced the farmers to the regreening technique Kisiki Hai (translated from Swahili: living stump), in the second part a clear sequel in which we go deeper into the techniques and where we can already show the first success stories.

Earth smiles :)

01 Mai 2019
project

Two Maasai communities have dug 6,400 bunds in Kenya 1.5 months ago and it’s already paying off: the area is regreening and this will spread, because the roots soften the earth, which can capture and hold the rain.

That’s why we also like to call them ‚earth smiles‘! Not smiling yet? By adding them to the total number of earth smiles dug within our regreening project areas, we went over the number of…. 80,000!
