     CAPSAY and the Climate Change Action Teams Project
The LCAP project aims to lead positive youth action in Kenya, and by example to inspire a wider range of stakeholders to do the same. LCAP strive to help turn the negative image of youth, fueled by poverty and desperate need, into a positive picture of young people committed to sustainable development. LCAP members are at the cutting edge of helping to build community resilience, while at the same time providing effective stewardship for the environment.
The LCAP project began in August 2011 and now is growing to include youth groups in sixteen different community settings across Kenya. Each group is fully registered and has a bank account. Groups also boast an office base with furniture, IT equipment and land space to run horticultural projects and display their work. Their projects reflect the different needs of their community but are all green (i.e. friendly to the environment) and all set out to demonstrate ways of creating practical actions that lead to community benefits
