Janeth Siele – Empowered by KWEN to save and invest: Janeth is a widow who lost her husband at an early age after her marriage. She felt neglected by the society and was not able to feed her family. Janeth had an idea of poultry farming but lacked knowledge on how to implement that idea. When she heard of KWEN through a training held at Kaboson girl’s school, she was very much interested and asked the field officer to visit and train their group. This table banking concept has helped her to learn a lot in terms of livelihood project.

Maruge school:
Maruge School is located close to the border between Kajiado and Kiambu Counties. Kajiado County is found in the Great Rift Valley and is largely occupied by the Maasai community. They are pastoralists and largely derive their livelihood from livestock keeping and rearing. On the other hand the neighbors in Kiambu County are largely farmers and derive their livelihood through agriculture. The two communities sometimes find themselves in conflicting situations over the use of the natural resources.  As part of the schools wider scope, conflict resolution through education and children is greatly emphasized.
Karura forest:
visit to TOP Kenya centre in the city: Karura Forest Primary school situation inside the forest in the city where you’ll be received with a warm herbal tear under the “Tree of Wisdom”. You will have the opportunity to sample ” bitter herbs” and appreciate their healing or medicinal values. Admire the upcycling of food by pupils for sustainability as you enjoy the fresh air at the forest in the city centre.
Justus

Justus participated to the first Connectedness & Leadership Course in February-July 2017 and first learned about becoming a prosumer and building a green wall. Since then, he has been able to sell to his community vegetables and train them on how to build green walls and the use of permaculture.
This is an inspiring example of what people can do, when focusing on their own resources and Tapping their Own Potential.
