Africa Environment WikiFocus Celebrates Wangari Maathai Day

“No matter how dark the cloud, there is always a thin, silver lining, and that is what we must look for. The silver lining will come, if not to us then to next generation or the generation after that. And maybe with that generation the lining will no longer be thin.” ― Wangari Maathai, Unbowed: A Memoir

  • Feb 4rd : Call for contribution is open: please apply (closed)

    Microgrants are offered to local African communities to participate in this initiative in March 2023. Applications should include an anticipated calendar of events, potential local partners, the team biographies, and detailed budget. Microgrants may be any amount between USD100 and USD1500. The grants will be reviewed and approved by a working group (facilitated by the WIA / WMCI team) and based on the quality of their proposition. Grantees will have to sign a contract (with documentation delivery milestones), key contact information, and provide bank details.

    Who can apply? We are expecting at least 11 user groups and volunteer communities to join the Africa Environment Drive using the microgrant system. Participating communities will be encouraged to host events that include some of the suggested activities on the Central Page, along with other special interest and/or support activities.
