Stakeholder forum

Our Program Director , Gilbert, held consultative meetings with county government officials and representatives of youths and women to create awareness about the project. Our organization is seeking partnership to create a youth resource center that will provide vocational and business skills to enable them make MwangaBora solar lamps, cook-stoves, farm tools and other items that they can sell to earn money. Together with members of the community, we have identified the tentative locations where the center can be set up.

Our staff also engaged church leaders who promised to mobilize support for the project. Our Program Director emphasized the need for our project to remain non partisan but involve as many stakeholders as possible to ensure it can be successful.
