Alfred Waira is a graduate of social sciences. He has experience working with Environmental NGOs that promote conservation as core objectives. In his own words: “I have a passion working with vulnerable communities. I have worked with water stressed communities, listening to them as they relate their experiences in accessing water for home use, the challenges of sanitation, women doubling their caregiving with trekking the landscape in search for water and firewood while risking their security to predators. These experiences give me the vigor to work with such communities to find solutions that work to improve their livelihoods”.
