About

The Environmental Issues Clean-up and Justice aka "EICJ" is a program that consists in uniting countries around the world, and fundraising money for cleaning our mother Earth.
Five schools participated in the first EICJ 2015 that took place on November 28, 2015.

The following year our organization collaborated with Alert Funds, M-Changa, Pollination Project, YADEN East Africa, PCI Media Impact, IUCN in order to build padded plastic bottle stools, love the nature, make plastic waste floaters and constructing a plastic bottle classroom for the children in Mwangala/Kenya who don't have a classroom to learn.

Daily workshops will include:

Learning to live sustainably: Kishoka Youth Organization is a Zero Net community which means we recycle and reuse everything. Students will learn the importance of growing your own food, how to compost food waste, how easy it is to make plastic waste floaters and how to reuse plastic wastes with an entrepreneur mind.

Creating a spiritual practice workshop: Having a spiritual practice is so important in our busy lives. Students will have daily yoga and meditation classes with renowned instructors to help create a practice that students can take back home with them. We will also learn the healing properties of crystals, essential oils, plant medicine and building altars for your personal space.

Music and dance workshop: Music soothes the soul and dance is all about self-expression. Students will get to connect with traditional musicians from Kenya and also share the music they love. We will also explore the healing properties of sound vibration and the ritual of cultural dance.

Basic Ecology adventures: Kenya is one of the most bio-diverse and eco-responsible places on this Earth. Students will take weekly eco adventures to explore the local jungles, beaches, islands and reconnect with nature.

Plastic And Basics Workshop: Kishoka Youth Organization products are built with one of the world’s most fastest growing plastics bags and bottles. Students will learn how easy and diverse this plastics is to work with. From building structures, to round stools, to holders for your Iphone, students will get their hands dirty and learn local techniques for building and creating with plastics.

Team building workshop: Living and working in community is fun yet challenging. It takes organization, trust and communication to be successful. Students will learn problem solving, adaptability and to openly express themselves in a healthy way within a group. There will be daily group meetings to create new understandings of self and tribe within the group.

Community Outreach: Empowering the community is fun yet challenging. It takes organization, personal initiative, enthusiasm, facilitation skills, good listener, creative and communication skills to be successful. Students will empower fellow youths in the community, in schools and to openly express themselves what they understand on environmental issues clean-up and justice and reusing of plastic wastes.
