THE IMPACT RESULTS OF THE GREEN BELT MOVEMENT IN KENYA Founded in 1977 by Wangari Maathai in collaboration with the National Council of Women of Kenya (NCWK), the Green Belt Movement (GBM) has a network composed of more than 4,000 community groups who plant trees and protect the environment.
It comprises parts of Greater London and the six adjoining ‘home counties’ (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent and Surrey), parts of two of the three districts of the small county of Bedfordshire and a small area in Copthorne, Sussex.

Our work has not only helped reforest degraded land, but it has restored the dignity of many families in despair.
Using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) we record the location of the tree nurseries, and monitor the progress of the trees planted to ensure high survival rates. With the enhancement of our IT capabilities, GBM can carry out spatial analysis on ecological variables using high-resolution imagery. Using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) we record the location of the tree nurseries, and monitor the progress of the trees planted to ensure high survival rates. With the help of volunteer women, the Green Belt Movement began planting trees.
We know that Dell is proud of the work GBM has done and is happy to have powered the technology that’s creating a stronger environment and more vibrant communities. They wanted to address interwoven issues of food security, fuel wood shortages, soil erosion, clean water and poverty.
