About Us

My Green Story was formed in Kenya by the Sandy Vohra Foundation and a group of like-minded people with a shared passion for the environment and a recognition of our responsibility to this planet.

One day we shared our concerns about the environment, climate change, pollution, the rising carbon emissions, increased illnesses, drying water supplies, forest fires and the devastating impact on our country and our planet.

So, we decided to do something about it and built a team of like-minded individuals all working on a voluntary basis and focused on what can be done to mitigate the damage and have a positive impact on our world.

We focus on the aspects causing the harm and where we could start to create mindful impacts. These include reforestation, waste management, and clean water. Our aim is to increase awareness and education, to provide comprehensive information on what can be done on an individual, community and national level. Secondly how to ensure implementation of these measures, where we take up projects in all three sectors and look for partnerships with like-minded individuals and organisations.

These four factors will work towards improving the world around us to make it safer, healthier and cleaner.

Nature has tried to address these unnatural and unsustainable trends and has responded with greater number of floods, less predictable droughts, unmanageable fires, extreme temperatures and rising ocean levels. These are the results of our collective action on earth.

The world is already 1 degree hotter than in pre-industrial times and most abundant Green House gas accounting for about two-thirds of emissions, carbon dioxide (CO2), is largely the product of burning fossil fuels.

Rotting garbage produces harmful gases which people breathe in. Methane is one of the main gases produced and this contributes to global warming. If not managed properly, waste contaminates ground water and other water sources poisoning our drinking water and potentially being a source of serious diseases like cholera and dysentery.

Polluted rivers in Kenya have become toxic and deadly for surrounding communities. Proper waste management, sewage facilities, recycling, reforestation and education are essential. Let's make a change together.

For our efforts to be successful, we need to do this collectively with everyone in the country taking a responsibility. Please join our efforts in making a substantial difference or let's join hands together with your projects.

You count, what you do matters. Every little or big change has a magnified result and will improve not only our lives but of those of our future generations too. Don't wait, the time is now.

It does not matter how wealthy you are or which area you live in. We are all connected as a wider urban and rural community. The air we breathe, the water we receive and the food we eat is essentially the same. So we each carry a duty and responsibility to play our part in protecting, restoring and preserving these elements in our lives.

Here's What Happens with Global Warming


    Oceans have warmed, the
    amounts of snow and ice have
    diminished and the sea level has
    risen. From 1901 to 2010, the
    global average sea level rose by
    19 cm as oceans expanded due
    to warming and ice melted. This
    leads to flooding and
    displacement of people.


    Mountain glaciers are in
    alarming retreat and the
    downstream effects of reduced
    water supply in the driest
    months will have repercussions
    that transcend generations. Lack
    of clean water will bring disease.


    Climate change may lead to
    dramatic increases in prevalence
    of a variety of infectious
    diseases. such as malaria,
    dengue fever and leishmaniasis.


    Increased danger of wildfires,
    death, loss of biodiversity.


    Becomes disrupted with high
    temperatures, climate changes,
    soil erosion. The same CO2
    accumulating in our atmosphere
    thanks to fossil fuels is actually
    changing the composition of
    fruits and vegetables that we
    eat, making them less nutritious.
    Extra CO2 is speeding up
    photosynthesis and causing
    plants to grow with more sugar
    and less calcium, protein, zinc,
    and important vitamins.


    Will become more frequent and
    severe around the world
    affecting millions of people
    through extreme heat, causing
    drought, air pollution and death.


    The added volume of water
    creeping up coastlines slowly
    swallows land and homes and
    fuels more flooding inland


    Destruction of many species as
    earth becomes uninhabitable for them.


    Changes in water temperature
    causes alga to leave the coral
    reefs, bleaching them and
    leading to disease and
    destruction of the reef.
