Nurturing Impulses For Living Ecosystems

Nurturing Impulses For Living Ecosystems

The Nile Ecosystem

The Nile basin offers a rich pool of knowledge and experiences through which one can rediscover harmonious ways of living. Reviving and reconnecting with this wealth of knowledge is becoming all the more important especially due to population growth, increased demand for water, and climate change threatening the basin.

The NILE journeys

The NILE journeys is a platform of the Nile basin communities working on regenerating the land, the river, and the society. The ultimate vision and dream of the NILE Journeys is of ‘a Nile Basin ecosystem that nurtures life-affirming actions’. The NILE in the organization’s name stands for Nurturing Impulses in Living Ecosystems.

Impulses

The NILE Journeys strives to nurture impulses that are at a grassroots level as springs of shared knowledge and wisdom and strive to fuel their community’s love while nurturing its dignity and wellbeing. While creating experiential and participatory learning spaces and illuminating positive narratives about Africa through projects and programs addressing youth, culture, permaculture, land regeneration, water, value chain integration, entrepreneurship development, and exchange.
