Joseph Kabiru Macharia, Dajopen Waste Management
Date grant awarded: July 6, 2016
The Dajopen Waste Management project serves slum dwellers in the Bidii, Kitale community in Kenya. The project recycles waste by making products, namely organic fertilizer. This fills the fertilizer needs for the small scale farmers who grow organic crops in the area. They have participated in town clean ups, operating free plant clinics and training interns from high education institutes, including small scale farmers and youth, in waste management, good crop husbandry and organic farming.
