Peter Mwembe – Briquette Boys
Briquette Boys, led by Peter Mwembe and based in Kisumu Kenya, involves making cooking briquettes from recycled bio-waste. All proceeds earned from the project will go towards helping the children of Nyalenda slums acquire soccer boots, training kits, school books and meals. This work will give these kids hope and an opportunity to nurture their talents, while keeping them away from evil gangs and vices that are rampant in the slum area.
The grant funds will allow Briquette Boys to acquire an automatic chopper grinder and source raw materials to start compressing the briquettes for selling.
