“A one A we self-help group is running a door to door campaign for fuel from waste. Its core business is production of briquettes. This involves a lot of waste collection and management.
A problem is that not many people are using briquettes and the demand is already high. Many groups in this location are involved in income generating activities but a very small percentage is using waste to produce fuel.
Production of briquettes also needs a lot of players and a well-coordinated materials collection plan.
A one A we will demonstrate that briquettes production is a viable income generating activity that helps keep the environment clean.
Kia Maiko is a slum area that hosts the largest goat meat market in Nairobi and produces tons of slaughter house waste. Firewood is the main fuel used for domestic and commercial cooking.
We are planning to produce briquettes and stoves to meet the demand in this location. We shall also exhibit a machine that produces 50 briquettes and hour and is operated by one person; we are in the process of making it better.
The event will also be a chance to introduce Fuel from Waste for groups in the neighborhood.
In parallel, we will be running a Newma/Afenet meeting – our 3rd coordination meeting since the waste management at the Giraffe Center.
We will have representatives from the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife, Afenet members and all other associated groups.
We shall demonstrate the processes of briquettes production as a waste management initiative.
We shall also learn other waste management tips from all participants.
ALL ARE WELCOME
