This represents a significant proportion of household expenditure and causes significant environmental harm and issues with personal health. We have been working in Nairobi with the Community Cooker Foundation to fine tune, and build community cookers to tackle waste, charcoal use, and poverty levels. Developed by the Community Cooker Foundation, this system can be used for cooking, sterilisation and boiling water for washing and drinking, whilst providing a strong focus for a community.

(16 Sep 2017) LEADIN: On one of Africa's largest dumps, residents are making a living by recycling hair found among the mountains of rubbish. They have tapped into the multi-billion-dollar global hair care industry by selling the collected hair to beauty salons for a small profit. STORYLINE: Nairobi's Dandora Municipal Dumpsite stretches as far as the eye can see. It was declared full in 2001 but has remained active, with 850 to 1,500 tons of waste arriving every day. Kenya last month implemented a ban on plastic bags, a major contributor to the towering piles of trash. Environmentalists have campaigned for years to have the dump shut down, calling it an eyesore and a hazard. But for thousands of Kenyans, the dump is their only lifeline. 31-year-old Winnie Wanjira has spent her whole life at the dumpsite, where her family owns a restaurant and several other small businesses. She has discovered that one person's rubbish, is another person's treasure. An estimated 6-thousand people make their living by scavenging waste in Dandora, sifting through garbage for items they can sell on – such as plastic bottles, paper and electronics. Wanjira has figured out a way to tap into one of Africa's rapidly growing hair care industry. She has a small business buying hair collected by boys in the dumpsite and selling it on to salons for a small profit. "I get this hair from these boys, they usually wait for the garbage truck from the central business district which comes with garbage. There is always a separate bag with hair. So we have five different types of hair," Wanjira says. "So you can get lucky and find unused human hair. Maybe someone bought it and wasn't satisfied with it, maybe the colour, then they threw it away. So maybe that one, the boys can sell it to me at 200 Kenyan shillings (approximately 2 US dollars) while I can sell them to a salon at 500 Kenyan shillings (4.85 US dollars) if it's new." Of all the different types of hair extensions, human hair is the most coveted for its softness and versatility. The rising demand in Africa, and across the world, has had countries such as India, China, Brazil and Peru competing for the biggest share in the market. Virgin hair – that has never been dyed or chemically treated – is at the top of the market. Synthetic hair is much cheaper, but cannot be styled like real human hair. Wanjira selects the best hair pieces from the collection. She says competition for good hair among women working in the dumpsite is fierce, as they can make a good profit out of selling them to nearby salons. But not much of it goes to waste. Even if the quality is not the best, it can still be trimmed and sewn together to make cheaper hair pieces. "They are being used to make caps by the women that use sewing machines, but these are ready for braiding because they will be used and they will be washed and revert back to being new because of its texture. When there are many, they help support my livelihood because this is my job," says Wanjira. She has to collect a lot of hair to make a good profit out of it. "When there are many (hair pieces), they help support my livelihood because this is my job." Much of it is sold to hairdressers in Korogocho, a poor district across the river from Dandora. Dozens of women have set up makeshift hair salons in the local market. At a back alley in Korogocho, 29-year-old Mary Wanjiku washes the hair she recently bought from the dumpsite. She uses detergent to wash and rinse it, and sometimes applies oil and perfume to it to make it shiny and smell nice. She has been a hairdresser in Korogocho for nearly 10 years. But she is happy to be working there and says using hair from Dandora makes a lot of business sense to her.

Link the Hidden Treasure” empowers vulnerable women in Korogocho slums to earn decent livelihoods in a safe environment. As a Youth to Youth Fund (Y2YF) grantee, Link the Hidden Treasure has provided 63 young women with the entrepreneurship and technical skills necessary to convert waste materials into marketable accessories (i.e. necklaces from waste paper, recycling of hair additions, and liquid soap production), facilitating the creation of 23 businesses and 44 jobs. They are now scaling up their initiative to create a larger impact. The Y2YF is a competitive grant scheme implemented by the International Labour Organization-Youth Entrepreneurship Facility and an in-country implementing partner in Kenya, the Ustadi Foundation. This video was directed by Timothy Mwaura. It was co-produced by Timothy Mwaura and Anne-Marie Jamin, with Abubakar Nuuman as Production assistant. Editing, sound and music for this video was done by Joash Calvin Omondi. The cinematography for this video was done by Timothy Mwaura, with assitance from Abubakar Nuuman as 2nd camera man.

The disposal of urban waste plagues many poorer communities in Nairobi today, exacerbating poor sanitation and the spreading of disease in the city.

In Kenya, it is estimated that about 15,000 tonnes of electronic waste are shipped in every year. Almost all such devices contain toxic chemicals.
