Great work by all.
James Ochieng of the Hut of Orphans of Kenya, reflecting on recent initiatives says:
“We here at the Hut of Orphans of Kenya are glad to have been able to use the banner for our Freedom of Information Project. We have been able to talk about briquettes as a sustainable fuel. We wanted to emphasize the right to information as an indispensable component to the right of a clean and safe enviroment
Most locations as you already know are choking with litter. We believe that the Fuel from Waste Network has already started making impact. There is collection sorting and using of charcoal dust, saw dust etc. We are looking forward to a productive 2012. We shall continue with this work after the festive season. We had a lot of Fun filled days, we met a lot of people, we learnt from them we talked to them about fuel from waste. Most of them have already engaged FfW activity in their own way. ”
