Harvesting the grass seeds!

24 October 2018
project

The three grass seedbanks in Kuku (Kenya) are doing great in the dry season! Or… should we say.. the three Maasai women groups are doing great!

These women manage the grass seedbanks and just harvested 100 kg of seeds in Moilo, 90 kg in Enkii and in Inkisanjani even 470 kg. Wow! And the harvesting is still in progress, so these numbers are rising! They will earn a substantial income by selling these grass seeds. We are impressed (again) by these women!

Official program launch in Tanzania

18 October 2018
project

We are upscaling our programs in Tanzania, aiming to re-green an area the size of 20.000 km² by the year 2021!

After a period of testing and developing our new training and movement program in 1 of the 7 districts of Dodoma, Kongwa, we are extremely excited to announce that, together with our local partner the LEAD Foundation, we are upscaling our re-greening program to all the other districts in Dodoma.

Upscaling in Tanzania & Kenya

04 October 2018
project

Our programs in Tanzania and Kenya are in full development. In cooperation with our local implementation partners, we are currently scaling up to 7 sub-areas in Tanzania and in Kenya the expansion will start in 2019. We temporarily put Morocco and the West-African countries on hold.

We made the choice to focus on the expansion of our program in Kenya and Tanzania in the coming period. Of course always with a vision of expansion to all other African countries where re-greening is necessary. That is why we have also entered into a partnership with the AFR100, which aims to restore 100 million hectares of landscape by 2030.

Blog: Knowledge exchange in Tanzania

03 October 2018
blog project

What’s better than sharing your knowledge and experience with an enthusiastic and inquisitive group of people from different corners of the country?

Last week our colleague Lieke (who btw speaks almost fluently Swahili!) got the chance to hold such an event in Kongwa, one of our districts in Tanzania. Farmers, Maasai, village leaders and ecovillage project employees from different parts of Tanzania came to visit her and our colleagues from LEAD Foundation.

In Lieke’s blog you can read how she undoubtedly ‘sowed the first seeds’ outside the Dodoma region for a greener Tanzania! ->

Our campaign

23 August 2018
media movement

Have you seen us already on TV,  heard us on the radio or came across one of our green billboards? 

Thanks to our partner Kinetic Nederland (and Ngage Media, JCDecaux, blowUPmedia, MMDDigital, CSdigital, Interbest), we are currently visible throughout the country on digital screens and billboards. 

The Justdiggit campaign shows the positive results of our projects in Kenya with the message that large-scale regreening not only has a positive impact on the climate, but also contributes directly to water and food security, biodiversity and the local economy
