Sit back and relax and read all about our highlights of 2020!

We’re going to start digging again!
We’re going to start digging bunds again in our project area in Enkii, Kenya! Because of an exceptionally long rainy season (mid November to mid March) and COVID-19 we had to postpone the digging. Together with our partner MWCT (Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust) we have developed a protocol that makes it possible to dig bunds in a safe way.

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.

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!
Curious how this new regreening tool works? Read it here ->
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?
Take a look at all the campaigns over here ->
Educating farmers through SMS
Thus far, our partner LEAD Foundation has collected 43,271 phone numbers of Tanzanian farmers who want to receive instructions on how to perform Kisiki Hai, so they can regreen their land!
“Karibu! Thank you for signing up for Kisiki Hai sms, together with your champion farmer we are here to support you in practicing Kisiki Hai. You will receive messages every week. Best, Mr Kisiki Hai.”

GROUNDbreaking news: Justdiggit’s Regreening platform!
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!
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!
