Highlights 2020

29 December 2020
partners movement project

2020 is almost over and… what a year it has been! Despite the challenges this year brought along, we have many highlights to share with you nonetheless! For instance: we dug 14,500 bunds, added three new grass seed banks, expanded to new countries, and worked hard on our (new) partnerships. Sit back and relax and read all about our highlights of 2020! 


Three new Grass Seed Banks

15 December 2020

When it comes to our grass seed banks projects, we always say the grass is greener… when collaborating with a women’s group! The projects are going so well that we decided to set up three new banks in our project in Olgulului-Ololarashi (OOGR), Kenya. Time for a little update!


Final Digging Day

06 November 2020

On the last day of October, we have had our Final Digging Day of 2020. In the Enkii area in Kenya, we have reached our local regreening goal: 32,400 bunds have been dug.


Bringing green back with help of grazing management

27 August 2020

Justdiggit is mostly known for digging to capture rainwater and re-growing trees, but did you know we use other regreening techniques as well? One of those being: grazing management. How does this work? 


We’re going to start digging again!

12 August 2020
movement project

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. 



Meet our new colleague: Samwel Jakinda

15 July 2020

Meet Samwel Jakinda: our new technical support on landscape restoration! Samwel has years of experience in facilitating community development within pastoral communities.  As of now, he will put these great skills to use within u our projects in Kenya!


Building a landscape restoration enterprise

02 July 2020

Over the past years we’ve successfully demonstrated the potential of landscape restoration activities in the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem. Our projects show the positive impacts these restoration activities have on the environment, society and the local economy. Now we want to take this to the next level, by transforming our grass seed banks into self-sustainable landscape restoration enterprises. Let us explain to you how this works! 


A green oasis in Enkii

10 June 2020

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?
