Mau Forest Complex trainings

Through workshops, training has been offered on creating alternative businesses to avoid upsetting soil structure by transitioning into clean energy. The intervention was targeted at women groups especially, trying to pull them from the charcoal burning business into clean energy such as bio-gas and briquettes. The Mau project targeted a community of about 600 people across Maasai Mara, Mau and Cherangany. The materials for the biogas kits and briquettes were all sourced locally making them both cheap and quick to assemble and sell/buy thus providing an alternative venture.

There has also been sample installations in a few homes to demonstrate setup and running of the kits. The community has been taught on the benefits and processes of identifying, collecting seeds and planting indigenous trees as a business and as a step towards regeneration of the forest which include medicinal, economic and environmental.
