Transforming Communities through climate change adaptation and green business

Who we Are
Iveti Climate Action Team (I-CAT) in Kathiani was formed in June 2013 as a youth group by a team of from four leavers and currently has twenty (20)members. Our main aim is to ensure young people have been empowered both socially and economically so as to develop a sustainable livelihood. I-CAT looks forward to impact more positive traits in youths so that they can take actions on issues of concern and address the challenges for environmental sustainability. We believe in change through L-CAP projects and most importantly in young people, as well as establishing income generating activities that make us sustainable. Our major focus is motivating other young people to actively take part in developing youthful solutions to environmental challenges. Through our various partnerships we hope to increase awareness at local community level, and impact more on local decision making.

CAPSAY and the Climate Change Action Teams Project
The LCAP project aims to lead positive youth action in Kenya, and by example to inspire a wider range of stakeholders to do the same. LCAP strive to help turn the negative image of youth, fueled by poverty and desperate need, into a positive picture of young people committed to sustainable development. LCAP members are at the cutting edge of helping to build community resilience, while at the same time providing effective stewardship for the environment. The LCAP project began in August 2011 and now is growing to include youth groups in sixteen different community settings across Kenya. Each group is fully registered and has a bank account. Groups also boast an office base with furniture, IT equipment and land space to run horticultural projects and display their work. Their projects reflect the different needs of their community but are all green (i.e. friendly to the environment) and all set out to demonstrate ways of creating practical actions that lead to community benefits
