NEW LIFE TO PLASTIC

Waste Management System in Kibera, Nairobi

The project involves the study and the implementation of an innovative waste management system in Kibera slum. The new system will solve problems that stem from improper waste disposal, raising awareness and sensitization of the population towards environmental issues, focusing especially on low-income and low-educated groups. The target groups of this project are women, in charge for the recycling plant, and the waste pickers and youth groups currently involved in collection activities. Through the creation of a circular economy within the slum, in which income is able to be generated from plastic products consumed, the entire micro-economy of the slum is also projected to benefit from the implementation of this project.
