Challenge

Likoni as a whole has experienced unmanaged dumping of waste materials both solid and liquid wastes. With the population of about 70,000 people and unplanned housing structures, waste management has posed a challenge to the local authorities. With the drastic rise of numerous and scattered dumping zones there has been a rise to diseases that have caused deaths to many people. Clearing of these garbage will drastically reduce the effect of diseases and we are going to affect about 24,000 families

Solution

Through this project we are going clear and reduce all dumping zones to 0 percent and provide a properly managed waste management system through periodic picking of wastes and depositing them in the county designated zone. Also we shall make gardens out of the cleared dumping zones. Houses that are not able to dig soak pits shall be provided with the soak pits and eradicate all stagnating water. We shall provide civic education on management of waste from domestic level to community level.

Long-Term Impact

The Project will clear all dumping zones in the community. The project will drastically reduce diseases that are caused by mosquitoes and those that are waterborne caused hence improving community health. The community shall have a working waste management system that will serve 24,000 families and will provide employment opportunity to the youths in the area at least 300 youths. The project shall have new beautiful gardens that will bring aesthetic beautification of the environment.
