In all the work, we must also remember to do some CSR. We can do it in a creative way. There is an event at Nailab on Friday, 8th April. The event will start at 10am and end at 6pm East African time. The event is dubbed “Eight Hour Action” and runs on a theme of  “Haba na Haba” which in English means “bit by bit”. The target is to raise 1000 Euro (Ksh. 100,000) through social media i.e. Facebook, Twitter and mobile donations like Zap and Mpesa.

The target project is called Less Is More and is based in Githurai, a suburb of Nairobi. The charity trains its members on local waste management projects (cutting plastic waste and reselling it) for the people of Githurai. The raised funds will go towards training the members in business, education, awareness and communications. For more information about the project, click on

What is the Action Plan for The Fundraising Event?

In the spirit of the swahili saying, haba-na-haba hujaza kibaba (Little by Little Fills the Pot), the organisers are looking to engage people to donate their 1% which could be as little as Ksh 50. The organisers looks to set the amount which can be donated as low as possible with the hope of seeing like 2,000 people donate Ksh 50 rather than one person donate Ksh 100,000.
