Third Year Scholar’s Sisal Project Update

sec Brian Kilonzi, a third year scholar, convened a meeting with his budget committee consisting of the Vice-chair, treasurer, secretary, three members in May (see photo).  Brian explains, “One thing I learned is that when members are engaged, especially in decision making, it helps build their confidence and amplify their commitment to the group. More importantly it instills a sense of ownership.” Brian’s project focuses on sisal and other crops.  He and his community will be purchasing a sisal processing machine to add value to the sisal i.e. twine and rope from the sisal bring more income than the sisal plant alone.
