Nairobi, Kenya – In a groundbreaking partnership, the Association of Women in Agriculture Kenya (AWAK) has joined forces with the Office of the First Lady, Her Excellency Mama Rachel Ruto, under the ‘Mama Doing Good’ initiative. Together, they are championing Women Economic Empowerment, Environment and Climate Action, and Faith Diplomacy, with a primary focus on clean energy alternatives and waste conversion into briquettes.
The recent training session held in Kawangware slums, Nairobi, showcased a revolutionary technology for briquette-making, designed to convert food waste from households and markets into environmentally-friendly briquettes. Unlike traditional methods, this innovative technology requires no charcoal dust or sawdust, ensuring a waste-free process.
The ‘Mama Doing Good’ initiative, spearheaded by Her Excellency Mama Rachel Ruto, is committed to uplifting women across Kenya by promoting economic empowerment, sustainable environmental practices, and fostering faith-based cooperation. AWAK’s shared goals and vision led to the identification of key areas of collaboration.
AWAK’s training in clean energy alternatives and briquette-making is just the beginning of this powerful partnership. Both organizations have expressed their excitement at the prospect of extending their efforts to reach more counties and women throughout Kenya.
As this dynamic collaboration moves forward, it is set to pave the way for women, turning them into pioneers of clean energy, sustainable practices, and environmental stewardship. With AWAK’s dedication to empowering women and the unwavering support of the Office of the First Lady, Kenya is on track to achieve new heights of prosperity and eco-consciousness.
As the training concluded, participants left feeling inspired and equipped to be change-makers within their communities. The partnership between AWAK and the Office of the First Lady is set to transform lives, protect the environment, and uplift women throughout the nation, leaving a legacy of positive change for generations to come.
