Income Generating Projects

The Nasio Trust employs over 50 people in Mumias and Musanda who work on a variety of income generating projects, including:

The projects are managed and run by the community. Funds for additional resources needed to help these business initiatives grow and thrive have to be approved by the UK team, but the long-term goal is for these projects to become self-sufficient (or as much as possible). Our income generating projects could be described as the backbone of the whole operation. The produce grown and harvested are marketed locally, but the hope is that we will soon be in a position to export to the UK and elsewhere.

Did you know?

Spirulina, whilst being an excellent source of nutrition for malnourished children, has become a popular superfood. One of our supports Helen Peacocke kindly produced the ‘Green Power’ spirulina cookbook which is being sold online to again raise funds for The Nasio Trust.

We are currently in the process of building a second spirulina greenhouse, and making the transition from inorganic to organic spirulina, with the help of Oxford University interns. Find out more about Spirulina production.

Eunice’s Story

My name is Eunice Juma and am 23 years old. I come from a small village called Buchirinya in Mumias Town.

I am a total orphan after the death of both my parents.My childhood wasn’t a good one because I had to be relocated every now and then to different relatives which means I had to change schools too that affected me in one way or the other but the good part of it is that I went through education despite all the challenges.
