Justdiggit believes it is time to share positive and hopeful insights when it comes to climate change. People must be aware that we can restore ecosystems and that solutions exist.
A green oasis in Enkii
Spot the differences! Within only three months time, the Enkii area in Kuku Kenya has turned into a green oasis. An estimation: 80% of the bare soil in this area is now covered with vegetation. Not only inside the bunds vegetation has grown back, the area surrounding the bunds also gets increasingly greener. How this works?

Regreening via the radio!
As of now you can hear us on the Tanzanian radio! Together with partners LEAD Foundation, Dodoma FM and Farm Radio International we recently developed a special Kisiki Hai radio program. This way we aim to inspire and activate farmers to start regreening their own land, without having to visit them physically.

Projects temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 Virus
The first cases of the virus have been reported within the African countries we currently operate in (Kenya and Tanzania).
Taking care of our planet also means taking care of each other. In order to limit the spreading of the COVID-19 virus and to support the health, well-being and safety of everyone involved in our projects, we temporarily put our regreening projects on hold until we know it’s secure to proceed again.

IKEA Foundation grant recipient
The Green Future Farming program – an initiative by RAIN, Meta Meta & Justdiggit, is the proud recipient of a grant from the IKEA Foundation. Thanks to our partnership with the IKEA Foundation, we are able to join forces and offer perspective to young farmers in East Africa.
The IKEA Foundation sees the potential in the collaboration between these three parties and how they strengthen each other. Thanks to the IKEA Foundation, GFF is able to ensure water and food security, improve livelihoods, benefiting local economies and positively impacting the regional climate.
Discover Greener.LAND: the DIY regreening tool for farmers
In Kenya and Tanzania, many farmers have already started to regreen their own lands. To spread the regreening movement even further we developed, together with Nature^Squared and SamSamWater, Greener.LAND. This website contains a free and easy to use tool that encourages farmers to start regreening themselves and gives them a hand on how to get started depending on their type of landscape and climate!

New project area: Olgulului-Ololarashi, Tanzania!
More regreening is coming up in Kenya. Because we’ve started a new project! The project area is located in the Olgulului-Ololarashi Group Ranch (try to pronounce that ;)) in the Amboseli Ecosystem, close to the Tanzanian border. The goal is to make rangelands green again, together with our local partners ACC and AET and the Maasai communities.
