We are BioSmart, a student-led initiative at the University of Exeter which has been running for 4 years. We focus on environmental sustainability and women empowerment with the production of Biochar in Kadzinuni, Kenya. We built specially designed furnaces that burn agricultural waste and turn it into BioChar, a sustainable fuel source that provides a local alternative to Charcoal. These furnaces have been designed to help the local community in Kadzinuni, Kenya and we are now expanding into Zanzibar as well. Two teams of women in Kenya use the furnaces for the production of Biochar, and now earn an increased income through the sales of Biochar at their local market to provide their children with education and clothes. Our aim is that we hope to be able to replicate this model in Zanzibar as well as educate the children there on the positive effects of environmental sustainability.
