The documentary for PEOPLE IN PERIL, Slovakia

About the work of non-governmental organisation People in Peril in Kenya.

The movie GREEN TRANSITIONS portrays projects of the Slovak non-governmental organization People in Peril and its Kenyan partners. The first story captures local communities on the coast of Kenya. Sustainable use of local natural resources is the denominator for cooperation of the communities and non-governmental organizations. Thanks to protection of the distinctive mangrove forests, economic growth of communities is sustained and the ecosystem of the whole planet is positively affected. The second story takes place in Central Kenya, where People in Peril association helps change the attitude of young people towards agriculture. The aim is to reduce migration from the country to urban areas. The outcome of moving to cities usually is not favorable: young people end up living in slums and their poverty is even more striking. By participating in a project at the Polytechnic high school in the Nakuru area, students review their stance towards farming, their attitude to life and ideas of the future often take on a different shape.
