Hope for nature is a registered and unique nonprofit making Organisation under cert MKN/2490/2016. It is well respected grass-root organisation that aims to conserve nature and alleviate poverty through an integrated approach, recognising the inter-relationship between poverty, environmental conservation, sustainable agriculture, wildlife conservation, poor health and climate change. Our focus encourages local Island people to identify their problems, needs and concerns, our approach is to facilitate or help them to create their own solutions. By working in a participatory way, with community consultation at all stages of programme design and implementation, we ensure that projects are effective and sustainable. We implement activities which promote the social development of the isolated Island in Lake Victoria, the improved management of natural resources and wild life conservation.
