In partnership with Kwa Muhia Environmental Group in Naivasha, Kenya
- Feb 2016 – ongoing
- Trained 12 people
- Developed a community recycling centre
- 6,000 people living in a cleaner environment
Kwa Muhia is a community of over 6,000 on the shore of Lake Naivasha. The population have a median income of around $2/day and work in the local flower farms. They have no proper waste collection and sickness is rife. WasteAid worked with local environmental champions KMEG to see how we could help them develop local waste livelihoods and recycle more of their waste. We are currently helping them increase their ability to recycle more by developing a site to collect and bulk recyclables.
WasteAid shares simple waste management know-how with communities in low-income countries.
Our projects help reduce the negative impacts of waste, create jobs, improve health and protect the local and global environment.
