Welcome to KCDN

This is KCDN, an Environmental Management, Economic Empowerment and Poverty Eradication Civil Society.

We welcome you to our site. Kindly feel free to share with us your thoughts. Ideas that add value will be appreciated. Ideas that want to make us improve our physical environment will be welcome. And more so, ideas that redirect us from the lost cause will be of immense value.

It is us who will improve the lot of our Environment, our Economy and make Kenya a Clean Country, where People join hands to work for our own Economic Emancipation and where Municipal Solid Waste Management is looked at as a resource, not as waste.

We need to set the standards in this region of the World and become the referral point in how a people can join hands and work for their own Economic Liberation, where waste can be used as raw material and become a source of employment for our people.

Our collective actions will surely make a difference. This is why in partnership with our Key Strategic Partners- The Public Service Transformation Department, the National Environment Management Authority, the Ministry of Environment and Mineral Resources, the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation,other key Ministries, the Local Authorities in Kenya, the Provincial Administration, A Better World, Akiba Uhaki Foundation and other Partners, we are moving deliberately in sensitizing and mobilizing Kenyans to work towards A Clean Kenya where waste is separated at source.

And this is why we are inviting Kenyans to join with us in The Clean Kenya Campaign and be a Member of Kimisho Sacco Society Ltd

The KCDN Calender of events

We have 2 major events remaining in our calender of events;
1] Greening the Nairobi East; A KCDN Initiative. We will host this on 5th September 2009 in Komarock and on this day, the pupils, the youth and their parents will plant 15,000 seedlings to start a process of greening the East of Nairobi.
We have noted with concern that in the East of Nairobi, we need to start a deliberate effort at planting trees. In so doing, we will be mobilizing the people on the need to keep safe their environment, take care of our surroundings, preach the virtues of Peace, National Healing and Reconciliation, and talk about corruption and good governance.
We will aim at interacting with the people from across the whole of Nairobi East in discussions that will add value to their day to day lives.
We will need all the support from Friends of KCDN to make this a success.
2] We will host the 2nd Edition of the KCDN Child Support Initiative on 4th December 2009 at Komarock Primary School. On this day, we will give books, stationery, uniforms and shoes to 1,950 orphans and vulnerable children from across Nairobi East District. To enable us have a successful day, we have been reaching out to Friends of KCDN for support. We know the resilience of Kenyans and we also know that Kenyans often feel sufficiently philanthropic, to quote the Speaker of the National Assembly Hon Kenneth Marende, to the need of fellow Kenyans.
In this case, it will be the guilt of our kids going to school with all the attendant comfort while our neighbours kid cannot afford even a second hand pair of shoes. These are the times when we are invited to be our brothers keeper; Love your neighbour as you love yourself.
We look forward to your continued support.
Many thanks and our blessings.

2nd Edition KCDN Peace Run

We had a very successful 2nd Edition of the KCDN Peace Run/Walk. The DC Mr. PK Thuku sent in the DO1 Mr. Patrick Nyanje to flag off the event.
The procession was led by the Administration Police Band and the Key Note Speech was delivered by Bishop Dr Julius Mbagaya, President of the Baptist Convention in Kenya.
We had close to 7000 people in attendance and the message of peace, national healing and reconciliation was apt.
We take on this opportunity to thank all those Friends of KCDN who came in handy to help us host this event. Together, we will move the masses.
