On May 23, 2021 Mama Watoto Self Help Group hosted the Machakos Community Meetup Day event. People from the community gathered to discuss small business strategies and management. Nursery plants were sold and given away to community members. There were discussions on how to reduce plastic waste and create composting opportunities. It was a chance to gather, celebrate accomplishments, and plan next steps.
Meet Benson Muthoka, a veteran landscaper with over 8 years of professional dedication. At the Mama Watoto Self Help Group he has learned how to plant and care for trees, as well as work with youth to teach them to do the same. He is working to gain access to clean water for plants. Thank you, Benson Muthoka, for taking part in the Machakos Community Meetup Day and for your continued commitment to working with the Mama Watoto Self Help Group.
