ICA Japan has overseen multiple afforestation activities aimed at greening and enriching communities. Trees bring in many benefits such as shade, enriched soil, cattle feed and allowing for crops to grow. We have aided communities in Kenya and in India. These activities don't only enrich the natural environment but also the social one too.
Access to Water
A necessity for sustainable and thriving communities. Water is an established human basic need and right. ICA Japan have headed many projects across the globe focused on bringing this to communities in Kenya, Cote D'Ivoire, India and Nepal.
In Kenya, water was collected through bamboo towers that caught water dew condensation. In India and Nepal, ICA Japan have created and restored wells teaching communities the necessary skills for the maintenance of these wells. Furthermore, pipelines have been installed in India to reduce travel distances for women and children.
ICA Japan has built and established community centers in each area that they operate. Community centers are for the local communities and as such are run by staff that we train. We have used these centers to train skills such as literacy, calculations, dress making and confectionery. These centers have helped train not only men but also train and empower women and children which in a lot of our areas are trapped in systematic gender roles.
