Leonard Muhanga Likhotio, Rehabilitating Women and Youth Formerly Convicted of Forest Related Offences Around Kakamega Forest
It is a common occurrence in Kakamega, Kenya to see women and youth arrested for forest-related offenses, including charcoal burning and deforestation, resulting in high fees. Leonard Muhanga Likhotio has embarked on a training regimen regarding legislation, onsite woodlots and energy saving cook stoves through his project, Rehabilitating Women and Youth Formerly Convicted of Forest Related Offences Around Kakamega Forest. Alongside training efforts, environmental education is offered in schools and women are issued energy saving stoves, which will be turned into demonstration sites for further groups to model.
