Africa Youth Initiative on Climate Change: In 2006, I was one of the founders of Africa Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC), a regional youth organization that was launched during the twelfth Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Since its founding, AYICC has played a pivotal role in ensuring that the youth voice is fully represented in global and regional climate change related events. AYICC has additionally enabled young climate activists from across African to unify their efforts as much as possible.

Kenya Solargen: In 2006, I was a co-founder and coordinator of the Kenya Chapter of Solargen (Solar generation) project. Solar Generation was a global movement of young people from all over the world taking action against climate change and calling for a clean energy future. It was initiated by Greenpeace in 2003. Kenya Solargen worked closely with the Inter-varsity environment Network (IVEN) in Kenya.

Solid waste Action by Youth (SWAY): Between 2005 and 2006, I also the co-founded the Solid waste Action by Youth (SWAY), another regional initiative for unifying the efforts of African youth in solid waste management. Apart from working with youth at the grassroots, SWAY sought to ensure African youth representation and participation in the Basel Convention and other global platforms for a for solid waste management.
