We are EcoMoran

We hope this helps you to get to know us a bit more.

Who is EcoMoran

Eco Moran is an initiative that focuses on providing wholesome, informative, interactive and enjoyable environmental education to disadvantaged and marginalized children specifically between the ages of 6 and 12. “Moran” is a Maasai word that means “Warrior”.

What are Eco Trips

As part of the learning experience, we aim to take the children on short trips (excursions, hiking etc.) where they can appreciate nature and experience first-hand the importance of nature as a build-up to what they have learnt during our sessions. We collaborate with Let’s Drift for our eco trips.

Become a Partner or Sponsor

How long does each project or phase take?

Each project, which is a placement within a children’s home or primary/elementary school, takes place over a period of 6-7 months and we teach the children using the EcoMoran curriculum. Each month focuses on a pillar of sustainability and its corresponding primary activity. For example, in the first month, we teach the children about sustainable and healthy eating, how food travels, composting, and the children set up an organic kitchen garden as the primary activity.

Do you only operate in children’s homes?

While we primarily focus on disadvantaged children from children’s homes, we are expanding our operations to primary schools.

Do you set up an organic garden in every home and school?

As part of the lesson on food sustainability, we teach the children about the benefits of and how to compost. Using the compost made together with the children over a period of 6 weeks, we set up on organic kitchen garden where we plant.
