Emmanuel Mbaji Mruu, Takkazi, Impact Grant 2016
Grantee Name: Emmanuel Mbaji Mruu
Project Name: Takkazi
Grant Location: Mombasa, Kenya
Funding Partner: Our 2016 Crowdfunding Donors
Project Description: Takkazi is a waste management social enterprise in Kenya. We shift mind sets from waste to resource through waste management trainings in learning institutions and though Recycling. We work in low income areas of Mombasa. We currently use bicycles to collect waste plastics from the streets to our recycling center. The bicycles can hardly carry 40kilograms per trip which makes it difficult for us to collect more waste. This grant will help us purchase a used light track which can carry at least 300 kilos per trip. This will make it possible for us to collect 1.5 tons daily.
