The Dajopen Waste Management Project tackles the Socioeconomic and Environmental conditions of vulnerable communities through community based waste management strategy. The strategy is implemented through collection of waste materials for production of recycled items and the training of other self-help groups and actors regarding alternative livelihood opportunities, waste management and organic farming. The project focuses on the environmental, social and economic challenges in Kitale and the entire country at large. We recycle urban market biodegradable waste by making organic fertilizer which assists the small scale farmers and especially the women who grows 80% of crops grown by small scale farmers in Sub-Sahara Africa and also handling most of the domestic family chores. Collecting and using garbage for economic purposes and in the process reduce municipal solid waste streams that can breed toxic materials and pathogenic organisms into the leachate of dumps and landfills.
