The NETFUND Green Innovations Award (NETFUND GIA)
Environmental awards are a great avenue to generate interest from Kenyans towards sustainably managing their environment. The National Environment Trust Fund (NETFUND) hosts the annual Green Innovations Award (NETFUND GIA) that seeks to instill a culture of self-regulation in environmental management in Kenya. NETFUND envisions a future where all Kenyans take personal and community responsibility for the management of the environment.
