We are living in interesting times, when no one seems to be sure of anything, Covid-19 has disrupted our lives and our enviroment and climate , our economies have been forced to slow down because of the strict quarantine measures.
Covid -19 has impacted our climate in a very intriguing manner and many in our country can attest to this , it seems the lack of using public transport and economic activities reduced carbon emmissions and the enviroment got some rest for a while , which was very good , but how sustainable was this effect we will never tell.
Our project plans to plant at least 3000 trees by the end of 2020 and mostly in our Nairobi area, we also plan to organise 10 young enviroment and climate change advocates training and workshop to empower them with communication and other skills.
The world is a very different place than it was just a few weeks ago. But even as we adapt to weather this crisis, some things remain constant. The importance of looking after our communities. The need forbighearted acts to help our most vulnerable climate hope never changes.We need to increase our hope by taking care of our enviroment and creating awarenes about climate change so that we are not caught unawaress as the world was caught at this moment by the Covid 19 virus
We need to reach out to the children going to school, to those in colleges, universities , to those who do not understand what climate change is ,Lets work together in Climate change even amids the Covid -19Crisis lets change our world for the better
Our project creates awareness among the youth so that they keep in mind the environment in their daily lives, and in the end it becomes a way of life. It also promotes radical change which can be applied by means and options that we offer, and transplant awareness of ethics and environment-friendly in the hearts of young people, in order to become part of the societal trend to preserve the environment. We ensure that they are aware of dangers of climate change and global warming.
We are working to reach our target in raising the $25000 required to make the project a success and we need your support.
2020 is the decade to make a difference in our enviroment!
This September Our organisation was represented in the first ever climate change by young Neema Neema uses the arts to speak and advocate for actions to mitigate climate change and she did her piece with the title :Let My Tears speak If Only They could Create an Ocean" .
She represented CFG, Her peers , Kenya and Africa at the summit and intends to forge efforts to plant trees and flowers in Kajiado and many other counties of Kenya.
Shantel Has been able to mobilise her peers and they are planning to be hosting fundraisers to raise money to purchase trees that will be distributed to schools , churches , homes, for planting.
Support our project by Donating this will also help further our cause as we support the ideas of the young people.

Kenya, just like other developing countries, is at the tipping point of global warming. Its high dependence on climate-sensitive agricultural production leaves it in a precarious position.
The country’s nationally determined contribution, which outlines that it will cut its carbon emissions by 30 per cent in 2030, is now giving scientists sleepless nights. This is because countries such as Kenya lack climate finance, technology and capacity.
Already, an increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods, has hit many regions across the country.
The poor, women and children are the most affected groups due to their low adaptive capacity.
Community Focus Group has the talents and the capacity to reach many in Kenya with the message and inspiration to cause individual change, we need your support.
