Project Management – Water Hyacinth Enterprise Development Project

Contracted by the Kisumu Innovation Centre

Region: Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania

At a time when the water hyacinth plant was a huge disruption to the fishing communities of the Lake Victoria region, on which 30 million families around East Africa relied on, the disruption was a major case of concern. Something had to be done in an attempt to avert the situation, which was becoming dire, since the water hyacinth is an extremely profilic plant that spreads rapidly. It started with proposal writing, and funding was acquired from the British government. Capacity building for alternative livelihoods utilizing the water hyacinth to produce furniture and accessories, fertilizer, biogas, briquettes etc went into high gear. With a very high gender mainstreaming agenda, a 90% recruitment and enterprise development project was achieved, with 5% being disabled women, who before the project, had no form of livelihood. This was the result of good project management and administration, capacity building, communications, PR, marketing, monitoring & evaluations and stakeholder management.
