East Africans in the diaspora have come together with  a group of strong-willed East Africans across the globe and made the decision to move forward and create a safe environment for any East Africans who ventures to return home. In the process, their endeavor became one of creating an aura of order and tranquility in a hitherto unpredictable environment.

East Africans have always gone abroad to work and study, but with one mission: to return home and build their nation. They always want to make a difference, not just for themselves and their families, but for those that live in East African permanently.

HOUSE-4.jpgBy creating a supra-national development agenda that encompasses a humanitarian aspect, Serengeti International Group (SIG), has now made it possible to return home. With the motto “Homeward Bound, Together.”  their strategy involves creating the kind of environment that East Africans yearn for when they leave for abroad; with the type of services that many abroad take for granted and with a very strong sense of responsibility for the region they live in, so that the immediate area benefits directly from this new settlement.

The strategy is also engulfed in a corrupt-free approach to living with a clear respect and maintenance of the rule of law.

Now, in 2013 and beyond, thousands of East Africans under the Serengeti banner, prepare to embark of a project that would pull them together in unity as they strive to achieve to not only fulfill their dreams, but to create enclaves across Eastern Africa that are void of partisan politics, high prices, manipulation and intimidation by unscrupulous financiers and politicians. Indeed, it is a no nonsense agenda.

“I sent money to my family to build me house for me. I trusted my relatives. They periodically sent me pictures to show progress.  On returning home in East Africa, the photos I was sent did not match any house. There was only a foundation. I had been conned…. by my own family. Now I see the light with Serengeti”

The Serengeti agenda provides you, the applicant a chance to join like-minded and strategic East Africans while making a major difference for local residents.   We develop creative ways to make sustainable, livable and thriving projects in Africa that balance economic value and environmental sensitivity that the East African Diaspora is accustomed to.We also partner with local communities to build a range of residential, commercial, hotel and mixed-use projects that reflect diaspora values but serve local needs. Our environmentally sustainable approach is at the core of our business philosophy, and is complemented by our multi-disciplinary expertise in design, planning and finance.SIG incorporates innovative urban design and construction techniques in all of our projects that allow communities to grow while also preserving valuable open space, improving vital transportation and mobility, providing opportunities for high-value job creation, and ultimately giving residents a better quality of life that they were accustomed to while living abroad.The projects that SIG is currently involved in are ultra-modern, gated and forward-looking projects that meet international standards in every way.To review the planned projects in each country, just click on the appropriate country under the project menu item.To read about how this dream started,  please click on “The Diaspora Dream.”Welcome Home.

Farming: A Serengeti Element

New Farming - 4

Indeed, if farming has always been your forte, this would be a perfect opportunity for you to get involved. Overall, the farming aspect of the entire project is included. To start, just:

Serengeti Enclaves welcome any effort to transform farming methods and improve staple crops such as maize, wheat, and rice to help to double food production and save hundreds of millions of lives across Africa. This would counter the rising population growth, dwindling natural resources, and a changing climate that has caused food prices to rise and also strained agricultural productivity.

Large Scale Farming
Many of those affected in Eastern Africa are smallholder farmers. Please note that three-quarters of the world’s poorest people get their food and income by farming small plots of land about the size of a football field. Most of them barely get by—struggling with unproductive soil, plant diseases, pests, and drought. Their livestock are frequently weak or sick. Reliable markets for their products and good information about pricing are hard to come by, and government policies rarely serve their interests well. In summary, as a Serengeti Farmer,  you would participate in large scale farming that would grant you the opportunity to increasing farm productivity via:
** use of heartier seeds
** use of more effective tools and farm management practices
** use of local relevant knowledge
** use of emerging digital technologies
** securing of reliable markets worldwide.

The Diaspora Opportunity
For those that are interested, using modern farming methods at Serengeti Enclaves can help increase production in a sustainable way, and sell more crops. This, in turn, can help reduce hunger and poverty over the long term by sharing the technology with the local populace – aside from the positive effect of sharing modern farming practices ( e.g. the creation of employment and farmer-related businesses in each respective region).

Income For You.
When a Serengeti farmer grows food and earns income, they are better able feed to their families, send their children to school, provide for their family’s health, and invest in their farms. This makes their communities economically stronger and more stable. Indeed,

Community Effect
Fostering sustainable agricultural practices for the Serengeti farmer and the spill-over effect for the surrounding area is just one of our goals. With achieved success, the impact would be felt in many ways. We would a good example:
** Grow more with less land, water, fertilizer, and other costly inputs while preserving natural resources for future generations.
** Achieve greater impact with partners.
**Create employment and business opportunities for local personnel

Research and Development
The Serengeti farmer is expected to:
* support research to develop more productive and nutritious varieties of the staple crops grown and consumed by farming families.
* Timely, relevant, and accurate information (crucial to farmers.)
* Livestock: support efforts – to improve the health and productivity of livestock—particularly chicken, goats, and cows—by improving animal genetics and veterinary care.
* Use improved seeds and access to better soil, water, and livestock solutions (to set an example).
