  • Transforming Waste into Resources in Nairobi, Kenya

    The disposal of urban waste plagues many poorer communities in Nairobi today, exacerbating poor sanitation and the spreading of disease in the city. People are strongly dependent on scarce natural resources, with firewood, charcoal and kerosene the major sources of energy. 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.

There are entire families who spend whole days digging their way through the Dandora dumping site on the outskirts of Nairobi, trying to get enough food to survive. STORYLINE: Dandora is situated about fifteen kilometres (9 miles) from Nairobi. It is one of the poorest districts in the country. Some of the scavengers are trying to find different materials which they can recycle or resell in order to get a few Kenyan shillings (local currency) for food and rent. From the young to the elderly, all of these people are trying to sift through tonnes of waste in the desperate hope that they find something of value. Some are so hungry they eat whatever they find. Others have become specialists picking carefully through the garbage to find their chosen material or item which they will then sell. One boy, Benson Karanga, says he is looking for metals to sell. Few people in the area own their own homes and most rent meagre dwellings. For the people who spend their days digging, one person's disposable trash is their gain. And every valuable piece found in the dump may mean an extra night with a roof over their head, or a meal in their stomachs.

And as the country heads into the homestretch of attaining vision 2030, Solid Waste Management is a challenge it is currently grappling with. However the National Environment Management Authority is on a mission to make waste management a collective responsibility. Watch more NTV Kenya videos at ntv.co.ke and nation.co.ke.

The disposal of urban waste plagues many poorer communities in Nairobi today, exacerbating poor sanitation and the spreading of disease in the city. People are strongly dependent on scarce natural resources, with firewood, charcoal and kerosene the major sources of energy. 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. The cooker reduces the amount of solid waste on the streets, burning the waste in accordance with World Health Organisation emissions standards, and offers a sustainable alternative to limited energy resources. In addition, the project provides.

While doing marine conservation projects at the Kenyan coast several years ago, one woman observed children making toys out of flip-flops that were washing up on shore. So she started a business to make colorful, fashionable products from flip-flops - while creating jobs and cleaning up the waterways. Jill Craig has more from Nairobi.

You can follow us on: Facebook http://bit.ly/9GKbIM Twitter http://twitter.com/AshdenAwards Blog: http://www.ashdenawards.org/blog/latest Deforestation is ravaging rural Kenya as people strip forests for vital cooking fuel. Yet biogas, produced from animal and human waste is a viable alternative. What is lacking is training and awareness. Sky Link provides both via a network of local entrepreneurs. 200 domestic biogas plants and six large-scale ones in schools and a prison have been sold benefiting at least 5,200 people. And, as impressively, wood use has been reduced by 800 tonnes per year resulting in an estimated 1,100 tonnes a year reduction in CO2 emissions.
