UNDP SUPPORTS A WOMEN'S COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATION IN KWALE TO CONSERVE MANGROVE TREES, FAMOUSLY KNOWN AS MIKOKO.

Mangroves play a vital role in protecting coastlines from erosion and storm surges. In Kenya's southern coast, the villages of Gazi and Makongeni in Kwale County have a story that resonates beyond their borders. This is the story of the Mikoko Pamoja project, which is a symphony of environmental stewardship, community resilience, and transformative impact. It is rooted in the Gazi Women's pioneering initiative that began in 2009.

    That's fantastic news! Supporting community-based efforts to conserve mangrove trees not only protects the environment but also empowers local women and promotes sustainable development. It's a win-win initiative for both people and the planet.

      @johnte_ndeto It is a great initiative that will empower women who in return pass this vital information to the younger generation for a better and sustainable future.
