Environment & Wildlife Conservation among our Community.
Kenya is globally recognized for its rich biodiversity and iconic landscapes. Kenya’s economy and its citizen’s livelihoods depend on their natural resources and nature-based tourism which COVID-19 has diminished. Climate variability, wildlife crime, urban expansion, and rapid population growth threaten environment and wildlife conservation efforts. 65% of Kenya’s iconic wildlife lives outside the national parks. We physically identify the initiative community conservancy in Kenya to pioneer and to support better coexistence between communities and wildlife. Prophet Reward Foundation environment and wildlife conservation is to empower and support our beneficiary initiatives which we have physically identified and register them for free as our meaningful beneficiary projects. We recruits the local and international volunteers, mobilizes the resources through donating partners, grant, funds, sponsor, awareness events, etc for the benefits to our community initiative projects.
Slums can be described as substandard housing environment. Slum conditions result from the combined effects of natural ageing of buildings, lack of maintenance and neglect, wrong use of the buildings, poor sanitation in the disposal of sewage and solid waste, wrong development of land, and increasing deterioration of the natural landscape.
The high population density and lack of infrastructure has led to acute problems of drainage, sanitation and solid waste management. Most sewage runs downhill in open ditches, resulting in stagnation, breeding insects and environmental pollution.
Families living in such settlements may turn to a variety of strategies to improve their livelihoods and household food security, including urban agriculture. However, given the lack of formal sanitation services in most of these informal settlements, residents are frequently exposed to a number of environmental risks, including biological and chemical contaminants. In our slums, households practice a form of urban agriculture called sack gardening, or vertical gardening, where plants such as kale and Swiss chard are planted into large sacks filled with soil.
Given the nature of farming in slum environments, small skill farmers and consumers of this produce are potentially exposed to a variety of environmental contaminants due to the lack of formal sanitation systems. These small skill farmers perceived exposure to biological contaminants to be the greatest risk to their food crops, that heavy metal contamination was also significant risk. We promote and support urban agriculture in informal settlements, and more generally about the trade-offs created by farming in urban spaces where we serve in Nairobi slums.
Wildlife Conservation among our Community.
Wildlife conservation is the preservation and protection of animals, plants, and their habitats. By conserving wildlife, we’re ensuring that future generations can enjoy our natural world and the incredible species that live within it. To help protect wildlife, it’s important to understand how species interact within their ecosystems, and how they’re affected by environmental and human influences.
We recruits the local and international volunteers, mobilizes the resources through donating partners, grant makers, funds, sponsor, awareness events, etc for the benefits to our community initiative projects. Join and partner with our program implementation to care for our nature and empowering our community initiatives to conserve our environment and wildlife.
