Green Generation Initiative (GGI)

Green Generation Initiative is a community-based initiative that was founded in 2016 by Elizabeth Wanjiru Wathuti; a recipient of Wangari Maathai scholarship award, with an aim of addressing the global environmental challenges that she identified with since childhood such as deforestation, climate change and pollution.

The greening schools project targets primary schools and secondary schools in Kenya with an aim of instilling environmental consciousness among children and creating a conducive learning environment for them. 

There is no doubt that a child who grows up without adequate nutrition will face significant barriers to academic achievement. Also, most pupils especially in the rural and drought prone areas go a day without food. We focus on growing fruit trees in green corners within the schools that we work with.

This seeks to help the school going children acquire basic conservation skills that will help them in identifying and solving environmental problems for a sustainable future.

We are focused on growing tree seedlings rather than just planting. We focus on ensuring that the tree seedlings planted in schools grow up to maturity.
