CWMEH

County Waste Management & Entrepreneurship Hubs

Through the County Waste Management and Entrepreneurship Hubs (CWMEH), we work to address the challenges faced by highly potential but disadvantaged women and youth by creation of decent work opportunities, both as a means of self-employment and as job creation for others.

CWMEH are a symbiosis program where linkages are made between waste generators, waste users and recyclers, thus creating opportunities for employment whilst contributing to the reduction of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and the related health risks caused by mismanagement of solid waste.

The CWMEH aim to maximize the value of all the material resources we use in our Kenyan economy, helping to create new business opportunities as well as helping businesses find savings in how they use materials and manage their waste.
