SKILLS AND WORK
This project is to improve the environment and the lives of 500 smallholder farmers in several district in Kenya through the production and adoption of fuel-efficient stoves.
The project’s objectives are to:
- To minimise farmers’ dependence on forest resources by reducing the amount of firewood required to meet their household needs through the use of fuel-efficient stoves.
- Promote, demonstrate and disseminate energy efficient stove technology in the rural
- Improve beneficiaries’ incomes and job creation through stove production.
- Improve beneficiaries living conditions by reducing hazardous smoke from traditional stoves.
The project will address the high deforestation rate by promoting energy efficient stove. The project will develop skills to construct, promote and manage the energy efficient stove within communities.
Women will be prioritised as candidates to be trained as volunteer stove builders. Culturally women spend more time in the kitchen and have a greater vested interest in the stoves. The trained builders will in turn train others. The trained builders will conduct routine monitoring of the constructed stoves and maintenance as necessary. The community will give a token of appreciation to the builders as part of the community contribution towards the project.
We are appealing for organisations that can fund the project cost of training the communities which will create employment opportunities for the local communities.
We have developed innovative sustainable cost-effective waste management called E-waste Kenya. This involves waste management especially in the informal sectors, providing waste disposal through our networks. We have committed leadership in E-waste industry and overall environmental stewardship through the use of proven technology, working with public-private sectors in cooperation with communities in Nairobi.
