I read in an article for Green Village this quote "Haba na haba Huijaza Kibaba" Little by little, all things are possible. This is what is happening with Green Village. I have been aware of this project from start and have watched it grow. It is strongly growing through strong committment and the love individuals have for families, mainly children. If you would go on this site it started from just a small auction in a small restaurant and through this, has provided villagers with fresh water and trash bins for recyling with just a little more they are reaching out to teach these people how to be independent to help them selves and their families to survive and also how to live in a save green world.

This project is truly grassroots in the very best sense of the concept. It grows from and is embedded in the culture, it realizes its power through collaboration and cooperation, and it seeks transformation through community engagement. Firmly rooted in the understanding that small changes can have a large and consequential impact, GVGF pursues a big vision with a big heart. Only with regard to funding is its footprint small.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its nuanced understanding of the interaction of culture, resource, history, economics and education. And the very simple (but not simplistic!) approach to a helping people change the reality of their lives without having to change who they are.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unabashedly committed to an ambitious vision but undaunted by a lack of funds.
