Title: sustainability leaders for waste = energy project
A team of Compassion Leadership Development Programme students, who come from slums, started a waste equals energy project in a slum Korogocho in Nairobi, Kenya with the help of 2LEAD4US. 2LEAD4US also attracts external parties from Europe to develop the waste into energy. In this project, the focus is on people who ‘want’ to collect waste because it becomes a resource for energy: creating value and a source of income. The goal of this project is for young sustainability leaders to make energy from waste and contribute to a healthy, safe, clean, prosperous sustainable living environment in the slum.
