Eden Environmental Clubs

Exciting, hands-on, after-school environmental education 
that deals with real problems and offers relevant solutions.

Eden partners with local public schools to begin Eden Environmental Clubs, modeling experiential education using the uniquely designed Eden Club Curriculum. Eden Environmental Clubs focus on relevant environmental education issues, practical projects that protect and restore the children’s local environment, as well as demonstrations of current appropriate technologies for more sustainable living. Children are encouraged to apply their faith in becoming holistic healers of the earth.

“The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.”



Eden Club members recite their own poem entitled,”Kenya Needs Us!”
