Environment & Wildlife Conservation among our Community.

ENVIRONMENT

Aim

Voluntarily increase energy availability, efficiency and usage of clean, reliable and renewable sources of energy.

Strategy

Scaling up the community led approach that contributes to strengthening participatory governance, that supports and develops local capacities for community-based development and that facilitates a collaborative relationship between communities and our change agents.

Goal

Improve transparency, accountability, integrity and quality of services
Environmental cleanups

Our charity is focused on waterway and the physical environment conservation. We use our services in a way to have a tangible impact on some of the most pressing environmental issues facing our planet. Therefore, we set out with a simple but meaningful approach to conservation.
We accomplish this by continuously organizing and hosting environmental clean ups across the country, bringing together thousands of volunteers to help us pick up things like

• Plastic bottles,
• Tires,
• Cans,
• Appliances and
• Everything else that makes its way into the physical environment as well as the waterways.
So far we have hosted 80 clean ups, removing 137512 pounds of trash from
• Rivers,
• Streams,
• Roads and residential areas across 47 counties in Kenya.
Steam cleanups
• Stream cleanups apply to all water bodies.
• Almost anyone can get involved in cleanup activities:
• School children,
• Youth groups,
• Neighborhood associations,
• Local environmental groups and individuals.

We found hosting stream cleanups to be an effective way to promote storm water awareness. Many people are unaware that most storm drains discharge untreated run-off directly into water bodies. Our stream cleanup activities allows concerned citizens to become directly involved in

• Water pollution prevention,
• Participants volunteer to walk [or peddle] the length of the stream or river,
• Collecting trash and
• Recording information about the quality and
• Types of garbage that has been removed.

Our stream cleanup activities also educate members of the community about the importance of stream water quality through media coverage and publicity efforts. Many of our programs have experts on hand at the events to discuss the stream’s ecology and history. As a result, the streams are cleaned, volunteers feel a sense of accomplishment and the community is better informed.

COMMUNITY ENERGY
With a focus on community energy initiatives, community energy-according to our interpretation, refers to energy projects in which communities have a high degree of ownership and control over the maintenance.
In cooperation with local citizens of the locations we take our intervention projects and programs, a model for scenario building, based on energy sufficiency considerations has been built. Energy sufficiency in this sense is meant to reduce the need for using energy to a sustainable level by taking into account local conditions, energy sufficiency measures as well as through behavior changes.
We have identified four thematic areas in which the principle of energy sufficiency will be successfully applied. Those areas are:

 Agriculture
 Material goods
 Food
 Buildings
 Mobility

We have identified six fields of change that we are working on currently:

I. Over consumption of goods to a material sufficiency
II. Property based society to one with shared services
III. Controlled decision making and value creation to decentralization
IV. Employment as a need to survive, to promotion of activities and autonomy
V. Cult of speed to a new discovery of slowness
VI. Anthropogenic vision to a nature-culture crossing worldview.

In all our projects, programs and activities focusing on community energy, we have been very observation of societal preferences, when trying to push for adoption and usage of clean, sustainable and renewable sources of energy. In that sense, sustainability as a concept has had to be realized in order to achieve both environmental improvements while maintaining quality of life for the citizens.
