Out and about visiting ‘Fuel from Waste’ participants

We had a useful and inspiring day out around Nairobi, visiting participants and other Jua Kali metalworkers. The machinery that will be exhibited and demonstrated is looking great. A variety of machines, from simple manual presses, through to compression-screw powered presses are ready to show and use.

The skill and ingenuity of the Gikomba/Sahuri Moyo metalworkers is astonishing. Using the most basic tools – hammers and i-beams – they reuse unwanted wire and sheet material and fabricate anything from rat-traps, through storage cases and stoves, to large ovens and BBQs.
