what we do

Our work is based on the techniques of the award-winning environmentalist, Dr. Rene Haller, a UNEP Global Laureate renowned for his restoration of cement quarries in Kenya. We use a similar model of environmental regeneration to bring economic security to poor, small-holder farmers living on inhospitable land.

We address communities’ basic needs through an integrated set of programmes in water, farming, education, health, alternative energy and nano-enterprise. Haller’s community partnerships are not quick fixes, rather they offer long term, life-skills training which empower farmers and their children to lead self-sufficient and sustainable lives.



Haller’s water programme helps small-holder farmers harvest water, and then use it effectively and safely. Access to water is the first step to helping communities overcome poverty; it underpins food production, health, education, and improved livelihoods.

Farmer Field Training

Farmer Training

Haller offers practical lessons on simple, affordable ways to improve soil quality, food production and more. Informed by Dr. Haller’s extensive research, Haller’s sustainable farming methods are recognised as models of best-practice by Kenya’s Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, the United Nations Development Programme and many international consulates.

Education underpins all of Haller’s programmes, as we teach poor communities to build sustainable lives for themselves. Haller also runs the award-winning Nguuni Education Centre, which is home to Kenya’s first free children’s library, and supports 17,000 children from the slums around Mombasa each year

Haller provides poor, rural communities with access to affordable healthcare and health education. We have a comprehensive immunisation programme, and help prevent disease by teaching communities about hygiene, malaria and HIV-Aids. Kenya’s Ministry of Health has called our health programme a model for best practice.

Alt Energy

Alternative Energy

Traditional use of firewood for fuel causes deforestation, soil degradation, and respiratory illness from breathing in smoke. Respiratory infections are the number one cause of death in children in developing countries. Haller encourages people to use alternative sources of energy. We install solar panels, and show people how to build and run simple biogas digesters.
