The Eco-Village Project is a collaborative effort with the Children and Youth Empowerment Centre (CYEC) in Nyeri, Kenya and a community of individuals in Lamuria, Kenya.  The CYEC is located approximately 175 kilometers north of Nairobi in the outskirts of Nyeri town, the administrative headquarters of both Nyeri East District and Kenya’s Central Province.  Lamuria is located in a semi-arid zone in the Rift Valley, located about 40 minutes north of Nyeri.

The CYEC is an initiative of the national program for street dwelling persons and is intended to play a central role in the innovation of holistic and sustainable solutions for the population of street dwelling young people in Kenya.

The final goal of the project is to integrate the children of the CYEC into the Eco-Village when they are at the age appropriate to leave the center.  The town of Lamuria and the CYEC will be joined together when the Eco-Village begins to be built in the community of Lamuria.
