Disclosure Announce Partnership with Justdiggit
We are proud to announce our brand new partnership with Disclosure. The British electronic music duo joined our team last February on a trip to Tsavo-West in Kenya to learn more about the work the foundation undertakes in order to positively serve the local communities through a number of initiatives.
Earlier in the year Disclosure released their third album ENERGY. Besides releasing a vinyl in a Supereco (sustainable) version, they also enabled their webstore customers to offset the carbon emissions associated with the production of the physical item when purchasing the album exclusively through Disclosure’s webstore!
Working closely together with the Maasai in Kuku, Kenya
The three primary areas of focus in the partnership between Disclosure and Justdiggit will be specifically on the digging of bunds, the grass seed banks and our beehives projects in Kenya.
These restoration enterprises will focus on the Kuku Group Ranch, an area situated in the heart of the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem in southern Kenya. It acts as an important wildlife corridor between the national parks and other protected areas in the region. The rangeland health is particularly important on Kuku Group Ranch as the Maasai inhabiting the area (~29,683 people) are predominantly pastoralists and the health of their livestock and wellbeing of the community is directly linked to the health of the rangeland.
Our partnership with Disclosure will work hand-in-hand with the Maasai community and our partner, Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) in order to implement the work in the three primary areas. These initiatives will be managed by two women from the community with further women receiving education and training on beekeeping.
