Ecologistics’ Incubation Station videos returns with an interview with Jackie Kariithi about her project in Kenya, El-Koony Center. The El-Koony Center is a multi-purpose center located in the Mount Elgon Ecosystem. The Center is focused on scientific research, professional and vocational training for community stakeholders, and policy development. They are located in Western Kenya in proximity to three protected areas: Mount Elgon National Park, Mount Elgon Forest Reserve and Chepkitale National Reserve. The center’s goal is to help preserve the biodiversity of the region by conducting scientific research and host training courses for livelihood enhancement of the local and indigenous communities.
El-Koony Center is Ecologistics’ first international sponsorship, and we are proud to be a part of this project. We invite you to enjoy this 20-minute video and meet Dr. Kariithi. https://www.facebook.com/ecologistics/videos
