Enviromental Protection

The quality of our environment does much to affect our wellbeing: a cleaner, pollution free environment is healthier, safer and more pleasant. As a Foundation consider not only the immediate impact our actions have on the environment, but the long term implications as well. We will pursue Environmental sustainability which involves making decisions and taking action that are in the interests of protecting the natural world, with particular emphasis on preserving the capability of the environment to support human life. The foundation is keen to promote environmental sustainability through initiatives such as;

  • Planting trees
  • Clean-up of counties
  • Advocacy on use of Green Energy

Optiven Foundation has partnered with Kajiado County Government and the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) – Kajiado, who had mobilized over 1, 000 community members in Kitengela to come together and help collect plastic bags garbage heaped in the area as part of cleaningup this great, fast-developing town. The exercise which took place on September 18 was launched at Kitengela Town by the County Governor, Joseph Ole Lenku. It aimed at getting rid of dumped plastic bags at the town, its dumping site, all the way to adjacent areas including Kimalat. Also present at Kitengela town was the National Youth Service (NYS) under the Ministry of Devolution and Planning, NYS Director General - Dr. Richard Ethan Ndubai and NYS Deputy Director Mr. Sam Michuki Directorate of Youth Affairs and presided over the clean up exercise and sensitization.
