McKinsey and Company have been tasked with ensuring that the NGO the Greenbelt Movement started by Wangari Maathai in 1977 becomes financially self sustaining and less reliant on donations. To make this a possibility McKinsey is calling on University students from 3rd semester or higher; young doctorate candidates and young professionals to hand in their proposals on how to do this.
Those with the best ideas will be invited to Hamburg to discuss with the Green Belt Movement team and the one with the very best idea, gets a chance to travel to Kenya and realize their idea.
