Ivy Langat is an Environmental Engineering student who is passionate about poverty eradication and community development. In 2011, she co-founded AZMA (Ambitious and Zealous Movers of Africa) which aims to engage young people in tackling problems in their community while giving back to the underprivileged.

Ivy was among the 10 students selected in Kenya to participate in the city based project, PAUSE (Pollinators, Arts, Urban Agriculture, Society and Environment) together with other 10 students from Tucson, and 10 from St. Louis, USA. The project tackled the issue of urban food systems with an emphasis on sustainable agricultural methods that support pollinators.

She helped to start a Mentorship and Empowerment Program in Kibera that aims to build the capacity of the youth by partnering with local organisations that provide various trainings. Ivy is currently in Beira, Mozambique where she is volunteering with ADEL Sofala for six weeks on projects relating to sustainable development.
