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

Clean Kenya @ 50; an Invitation

Dear Friends and Partners.
Listen up and kindly read this.
When we launched The Monthly Nationwide Clean-up Campaign in September 2010 in Nairobi, we went against all the grain and we are happy with the success story we recorded for the 1st Circle of The Clean Kenya Campaign- TCKC.
We chose not to respond to any call for proposals and instead, opted to invite support and partnership from those who believed we were doing the right thing. And we got this beyond our imagination. Men, Women and Institutions came forward and we are happy we all jointly made The 1st Circle of The Clean Kenya Campaign a success.
We were also far more impressed by the voluntary response and participation from many Kenyans in the Towns that we visited- Nairobi, Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisii, Kisumu, Kakamega, Nyeri, Naivasha and Kiambu.
It was the same story everywhere we went; many people enthusiastically joining with us to help make some change. And the response from the Government and the Municipal Councils was equally great. They came with working tools and equipment besides their staff members also joining with us. The Corporates were not left behind- some donated working tools which we promptly gave to the Councils.
We must also appreciate the many political leaders who joined with us. We have noted that the Governors have energized the process and now, it is time to join up with them.
Even though The 1st Circle of The Clean Kenya Campaign was by and large a success story, we had our low moments when mercenaries on hire berated us. But we took those in our strides and soldiered on. We also had severe financial challenges to effectively run the Campaign the best way we wanted. But still, we must appreciate our Partners who ensured the work was done. We want to make special mention of The Public Service Transformation Department, Akiba Uhaki Foundation, A Better World/SOFDI, Phoenix Aviation and the many more who joined with us. You are our heroes.
We are launching The 2nd Circle of The Clean Kenya Campaign and it is going to be exciting, informative and educative. We want to roll out our experience with the 1st Campaign and work for results within 11 Months.
We want to also address those areas that did not give us structured strength. We are starting by forming an Organizing Committee that will be broad based. We will have our 1st meeting at the Nema Offices in Nairobi at Nyayo House on the 3rd Dec and the rest will follow in an organized manner.
Secondly, we are reaching out to all those who gave us support in the 1st Circle and to all new Partners so that we can structure our support and partnership for The 2nd Circle. This will help us plan for the 11 Monthly Campaigns we are going to organize for the next 11 Months.
