Africa bamboo training project, Nairobi Kenya

African Bamboo Training Center-Go Near Ministry partners with Kenya Forestry and Africa Bamboo Center to provide a training program that empowers unemployed men in the slums to grow and harvest bamboo. Participants also are trained to make and sell their own bamboo furniture pieces. Profits are then reinvested back into their small start-up business.  With donated funds, more trainees who live in extreme poverty (less than $1 a day) can be sponsored and equipped to provide for their families.
