Kisiki Hai Tour
Our travelling cinema about re-greening one of the most affected landscapes has already been travelling around Dodoma (Tanzania) for almost two months.
During our Kisiki Hai Tour, we visit more than 300 villages together with LEAD Foundation to explain the re-greening method Kisiki Hai through music, dance and video.

Measurement brings knowledge!
As part of our re-greening program in Tanzania, a number of trainers received a colored stick from partner LEAD Foundation.
Read here what they will do with it! ->
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.
A green Kuku & Amboseli
Recently, we were in Kenya again to see the long-term impact of our landscape restoration projects in the Kuku Group Ranch and the Amboseli National Park. The re-greening results, especially after the intense rain season, were spectacular!
Find out yourself by checking out the pictures and watch the vlogs of one of the Justdiggit ambassadors who travelled with us to Kenya ->
Thanks to our great international media partners Kinetic, Havas Lemz, JCDecaux and MacLoud we can now be heard on Tanzanian radio! But not only that, the Tanzanian streets also turn green with our billboards. All this media space is offered completely sponsored.

Meet our education team
Pollution, desertification, and global warming: our planet can use some extra hands. It was the main motivation for Jan Hoetmer, owner of Leerbox Uitstekend and primary school teacher, and Andrea Forzoni, geologist, when they approached Justdiggit in 2017 for setting up a combined teaching program.
Read here how it developed into a strong team!->
Kids College Rotterdam Zoo
Last month a Justdiggit lecture was given again at the Rotterdam Zoo, this time by teacher Boy.
He shows you how rainwater flows without digging and when bunds have been dug in advance. Teacher Boy aroused a lot of interest among the children (and ofcourse among the adults), through the fun green experiments he performed.
Recycled phones introduced in Tanzanian program
As part of our re-greening project in Tanzania, we handed out smartphones to our 240 Kisiki Hai facilitators in the Kongwa district.
It will help them to track the progress their fellow farmers are making and to see how much land already has been restored. And the great thing is: all the facilitators give the phone a second life, because they originally come from the Dutch Railway Company NS. This is made possible by the organization Closing the Loop. A smart way to use used smartphones right?!

Newly designed shovels
In the past month we have been able to complement our eARTh collection with very meaningful designed shovels. This time Belgian artists started working with our icon ‘the shovel’.
With this project we want to create awareness, because by simply digging with a shovel we make the earth greener. Click here for the collection->
Tap water project
Since this week our partner Lokaal Edel from, among others, chef and Justdiggit ambassador Jonathan Karpathios, pours tap water in Justdiggit glassware. A voluntary contribution is requested for the water, which benefits our projects. This way, Dutch tap water slowly turns into rainwater.
