Climate

Climate change is a global problem with local implications. Frequent droughts and water scarcity are grim realities in Kenya and the Maasai Mara region is no exception. Having observed the dire effects of climate change in Masai Mara, we have focused our conservation efforts on this issue. The objective of our Climate program is to mitigate the effects of climate change by creating of green villages.

Our climate program has three projects:

  • Tree planting,
  • Solar energy, and
  • Alternative livelihoods less dependent on land

We have achieved the following so far

  • Since 1998, more than 65,000 trees have been planted
  • We took 5 women to train as solar engineers in India

The 5 women solar engineers have lit 200 homes using solar technology
