Who we are

HISTORY OF THE ORGANIZATION

Green the Future Programme (GRETFUP) has a remarkable history that reflects its evolution as a youth-led non-profit organization dedicated to environmental conservation and community resilience in West Pokot County, Kenya.

Our journey began in 2014, when a group of passionate and socially conscious young individuals came together with a shared vision. They recognized the pressing need to address environmental degradation and the impacts of climate change in their local community. This dedicated group of founders believed that by harnessing the energy and creativity of youth, they could make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by environmental challenges.
