Our strong commitment to a clean environment compels us to remain dissatisfied with an untidy or neglected environment. We are dedicated to raising awareness about the crucial link between a clean environment and good health.

Today, ETCO (Empower The Community), EcoWB (Ecologists Without Borders), and Power Engineers have joined forces with the Nairobi Rivers Commission (NRC) and the Water Resources Authority (WRA) to inaugurate the Nairobi Rivers Cleanup Initiative. The primary objective of this launch is to ensure the unhindered flow of water from its sources to destinations while ensuring its appropriate use for various purposes such as agriculture, fishing, and domestic needs.

We urge the general public to be custodians of their environment since it is the sole place we call home. Let the rivers flow freely.
