We exist to advocate for the entrenchment of citizen-driven environmental stewardship in Kenya and the broader African continent, spearheaded by youth and women. Our identity is derived from the Swahili word ‘Vumbua’ which means ‘to discover’. In this context, Uvumbuzi Africa is premised on the concept of ‘Conservation by Discovery’ of the numerous, largely undiscovered conservation stories, people and natural habitats in Kenya and across Africa.’
We observed that the authentic voices of citizens, particularly those of the youth and women on matters conservation, have largely gone unheard, thus limiting their active engagement in environmental stewardship.’
We strive to create a dynamic advocacy platform through interactive programs and using new media, that will amplify voices in conservation and showcase youth and women led conservation initiatives and enterprises with the aim of steering support to them.
