Olive Wangui Kirigo is a 24-year-old female climate-change activist with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Her passion for environmental conservation inspired her to start an initiative known as FridaysForFuture-Kenya that advocates for environmental conservation in Kenya. Olive and her team were able to organize several clean-up activities, climate marches, and community sensitization meetings. In 2019, they were able to plant over 1000 trees in Eldoret, Kenya. The huge impact of Olive’s work has inspired journalists from Goethe Institute-Kenya to write articles about her work. Additionally, she was selected as one of the participants in the 2019 American Express Leadership Academy, a member of the Commonwealth Youth Gender & Equality Network, and a 2020 YALI EA RLC participant. Olive has a dream for her country Kenya and that is for it to be green and clean. This year FridaysForFuture-Kenya has partnered with an initiative called “Girl Up” to donate sanitary pads to girls in high school to fight against period poverty. At the same time, FridaysForFuture-Kenya will plant trees in every school that Girl Up donates sanitary pads to. Olive believes that this unique partnership will address the issues of period poverty and climate change all at once. Together, they aim to plant 6000 trees and support over 5000 girls in Nairobi in 2020.
