OUR PROGRAMMES

Based on an approach to financing that is catalytic and has the potential to leverage additional financing, early investments have been identified for initial programmes:

PLASTICS

Gjenge Makers

Recycling plastic waste into construction materials

Since the 1950s, it is estimated that around 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide. Gjenge Makers aims to become the major provider of durable, recycled construction material through Kenya and the African continent. Their mission is to provide sustainable and affordable housing while promoting a recycling and upcycling culture. They currently produce bricks from discarded plastic. They employ 112 people from marginalised communities as plastic pickers, providing jobs to people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to work. Creating employment for people in marginalised communities while resolving an environmental issue of disposal of plastic. Funds will be used to scale operations by investing in manufacturing machines, a more significant and faster extruder machine and hydraulic press that will allow the team to take on large volume orders.
