What we do

Our Programs

Greening Schools

GGI creates green spaces within school compounds for restoration and revegetation needs. The green spaces have multifaceted impact, enhancing fruit nutrition, improving aesthetics, positively influencing students mental health, and contributing to enhancing student performance.

Fruit Trees For Schools

The Green Generation Initiative’s (GGI) current project is the “Fruit Trees for Schools” project. The project aims to plant 5,000 fruit and indigenous trees in 10 schools across Nairobi and Nyeri Counties. The objectives of the project include greening schools for climate change adaptation and mitigation, providing students with hands-on conservation skills, and offering nutritious value through the fruits produced. The project has completed its first phase of planting, where 3,650 tree seedlings were planted in 9 out of 10 selected schools. The next phase, set to begin in 2024, involves monitoring and evaluation, including the establishment of eco-clubs, training of school club patrons, growing of the remaining seedlings and managing the growing fruit trees. 

Environmental Education and Awareness Creation

At the heart of our approach lies the recognition of the critical role that education plays in empowering individuals and communities to understand, appreciate, and address environmental challenges. Through targeted awareness campaigns, workshops, and educational initiatives, we aim to raise consciousness about pressing environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. Our environmental education programs are designed to be inclusive, accessible, and engaging, catering to diverse audiences ranging from school children to adults. We employ interactive learning methodologies, hands-on activities, and multimedia resources to make complex environmental concepts relatable and comprehensible.

Schools Eco-club Project

Schools eco-clubs serve as a vibrant and dynamic platform for students to actively engage in environmental stewardship and sustainability initiatives within their educational institutions. The eco-clubs are designed to be inclusive and participatory, welcoming students from all grade levels and backgrounds to join in collective efforts to promote environmental awareness and action. Through a variety of activities and projects, eco-club members have the opportunity to learn about pressing environmental issues, develop leadership skills, and contribute to positive change in their school communities.

Environmental Advocacy

Environmental advocacy is a key for driving systemic change and influencing policies and practices that impact the environment. At its core, environmental advocacy involves raising awareness, mobilizing public support, and engaging with decision-makers to promote policies and actions that protect and preserve the natural world. Within our organization, environmental advocacy takes various forms, including grassroots campaigns, lobbying efforts, and strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations and stakeholders. We aim to amplify the voices of communities affected by environmental degradation, ensuring that their concerns are heard and addressed by policymakers and industry leaders.

Energy transition – Solar and Bio-gas

As part of the Green Generation Initiative’s environmental advocacy efforts, we focus on promoting energy transition through the adoption of solar and biogas technologies. Our advocacy aims to raise awareness about the environmental benefits of renewable energy sources and encourage their widespread adoption. Through educational campaigns, community outreach, and policy advocacy, we advocate for increased investment in solar and biogas infrastructure, incentivizing their use in households, businesses, and institutions. By promoting these clean energy alternatives, we seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change, and foster a more sustainable energy future for all.

Community Fruit Trees Orchards for triple-bottom-line Planet, People and Profit.

GGI collaborates with local communities, particularly women, providing fruit tree seedlings for cultivation through the Fruit Trees Orchard Cooperatives movement. This initiative aims for a triple bottom-line impact: restoring tree cover and establishing long-term carbon credit schemes (Planet), fostering social cooperatives to build local environmental ambassadors (People), and engaging in fair trade fruit marketing to enhance community livelihoods (Profit).

Score for Nature

Score for Nature

Recognizing the universal appeal and influence of sports, we leverage this platform to engage individuals and communities in environmental action while simultaneously fostering a sense of camaraderie, teamwork, and healthy competition. Through Score for Nature, we organize various sporting events, tournaments, and challenges with an environmental twist. These events may include activities such as eco-friendly marathons, beach clean-up soccer matches, tree-planting relay races, or cycling tours to raise awareness about environmental issues and inspire action.

Ecosystems Restoration Project

Ecosystem restoration is a core thematic area within the GGI, reflecting our commitment to conserving and rehabilitating degraded ecosystems for biodiversity conservation and environmental sustainability. As part of our efforts, we have adopted two acres of Oloolua forest for restoration, recognizing its importance as a vital ecosystem in need of protection. Through this initiative, we have already planted 110 indigenous trees, contributing to the regeneration of the forest and enhancing its ecological integrity. Our focus on ecosystem restoration aligns with our broader mission to promote holistic approaches to environmental conservation and stewardship.

Open Heart for Nature

The Open Hearts for Nature project aims to engage with local communities, identify environmental challenges, provide education on environmental conservation, collaboratively develop solutions, and empower communities through the distribution of fruit tree seedlings. The project seeks to engage communities in open dialogues about their environmental concerns, encouraging them to actively participate in addressing these issues. Environmental education is a fundamental component, where communities are educated about sustainable environmental practices and the importance.
