UBUNTU Green is a community-born solution to invest in environmental health and meet local sanitation needs.

 

 

How does it work?

UBUNTU Green collects a small monthly fee from nearly 500 clients who have joined the program and provides them with a reusable trash bag. Beyond pick up, UBUNTU Green employees and community healthcare workers are beautifying their community by planting trees and installing community trash cans.

Why green?

We’re cleaning up the town to prevent the spread of diseases like tetanus and leptospirosis through rotting waste. UBUNTU implemented organized waste management beginning in 2012, the first program of its kind in the Naivasha region of Kenya.

Who’s involved?

Our community healthcare workers  help educate the community about the benefits of UBUNTU Green’s service, how to properly dispose of trash to keep the streets clean, and basic composting techniques.
