Action Now Kenya

Kajiado Action Now Kenya (ANK) has continued to influence policies that would guide collection, harnessing and distribution of water service and the collection and disposal of garbage in Kajiado County. ANK is also pushing for the Kajiado County Government to allocate at least KES. 10 million to be used in purchaing and installing litter bins with the county. 

ANK has successfully mobilized communities to engage directly with their leaders. As a result of this, members of the community have visited Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) in 5 wards in Kajiado County to request for the installation of litterbins in the towns. Communities have now taken the lead in engaging with the local Senator, Governor and MPs in the county in establishing legislations that would see funds set aside for garbage collection and installation of litterbins in Kajiado County.

ANK’s key signature issue on waste management has now been picked up by the County Government and ANK is currently working with the County Ministry of Environment on how to further improve and implement waste management solutions in Kajiado County.

As a result of the programme, ANK has successfully established partnerships with grassroot advocates[1], MCA’s in 5 wards, the Kajiado North Member of parliament, county opinion leaders, wards administrators, sub county administrators, the Chief Revenue Officer in Kajiado County Government and key executive staff within the County Government.
