Dear Green-Kenya Supporter
Dear Green-Kenya team, and all participants in Green-Kenya programs,
Congratulations on your fifth anniversary! It feels like just yesterday I was writing to you in celebration of your 4th anniversary, yet you all have achieved so much together since that day.
Together you are changing lives through your activities- 3000 people have been touched by this work in the past 2 years. This is an incredible accomplishment and one which you should be proud. But we at Pollination Project believe that your impact is even greater than that. You are building bonds and partnerships with leaders in Kenya and Malawi, you are innovating and growing, and through these things, you are inspiring us and others.
On behalf of all of us at The Pollination Project, enjoy this celebration of the first 5 years of Green-Kenya. We know that there will be many more such celebrations to come.
This letter was a letter from The Pollination Project (TPP), It was read to all our participants in Mukuru and Shauri Moyo community by our young leaders, thank you TPP.

Peaceful coexistence through play
What comes in to your mind when the word “Peace” is mentioned? The truth of the matter is that some people have never experienced peace which is a moment of tranquility and calmness in their lives. Peace day is celebrated all over the world in the month of September.
Our community coaches have been shading light on Peace and how we can work towards peace and cohesion in schools, at home and as individuals through play. Through our discussions, we realized that most participants felt that there was a strong connection between elections and violence. This is a perception that we seek to change at an early age.
Team building with Footsteps staff
Footsteps has been the latest organization to request for Green-Kenya corporate and community team building package. The team building was designed for in-house staff who wanted some time off from their busy schedule around office environment.
The proceeds that come from corporate and community team building goes a long way to support Children who are taking part in community impact program in Mukuru and Shauri moyo slums.
Green-Kenya has turned 5 years!!
Green-Kenya has reached another mile stone, we have just turned 5 years in our journey of transforming the community through Sports for social impact. The celebration was held in Mukuru where most of our programs take place.
We were glad to be joined by all of physical education teachers who play a critical role to protect the Children during and after the session as they go back to school. We would like to thank all our partners, Community Schools, participants, parents and our community coaches for joining our efforts together to create awareness through Sports.
Continuation of Sports for social Impact consultancy with Footsteps
We had another successful Sports for social impact Consultancy with Footsteps in Mukuru Kwa Ruben where 3 of our programs are taking place. This round the Sports mentors had practical sessions with our participants for the first time.
The consultancy is an on going training that will lead the sports mentors to be able to conduct sports for social impact program in different communities within Eastlands.
