GWIAN is networking different seedlings youth groups from all over Kenya. With FCCK “Forest Conservation Corps of Kenya” from Kakamega (western Kenya), with “Mazinguira Youth Group” in Machakos (Central Kenya) and now with local groups from coastal area.
Tree planting is GWIAN’s action to slow down, stop and then to reverse the growth of global greenhouse gas emissions.
By tree planting we will see more rapid and widespread access to cleaner and greener energy, new jobs opportunities and reductions in unhealthy urban and in-door pollution
By involving local artistes in our workshops, GWIAN wants them to become Agent of Change. Artistes can spread information about global warming issues through their performing art and reach the entire population.
Local support from locals’ people will encourage long-term sustainability. Local artistes can help in that process
Poverty in informal settlements (slums) is real. A polluted environment is a threat to all community members. The one dollar income per day is not enough to support a family or individual to a sustainable life.
Basic education provides a steady start for a better future society. The student at school cannot concentrate on an empty stomach.
The government of Kenya has a programme of free education but in this situation, the poorest aren’t favoured as schools spiels that everybody has to cater for their own uniforms and learning materials.
