About Us


The world increasingly relies on indigenous communities to protect the ecosystems that exist within the land that they own.
the incredible biodiversity of Northern Kenya and the culture of the indigenous people both face daunting threats to their long-term survival. The fate of both rests with the indigenous communities themselves as they work to figure out how to benefit from their natural resources while preserving them.

WEP is an indigenous Organization registered in Kenya as a non-profit in 2018.

we aim to strengthen coexistence between indigenous people and nature in northern kenya to create win-win situations for both indigenous people and their environment.
