Kenneth is a social entrepreneur with extensive, hands-on experience with social enterprise and sustainable livelihoods development. He has worked extensively with NGOs and CBOs in Kenya in developing their capacity and fundraising. He holds a Master’s degree in community care HIV and AIDS from University of Wales Trinity David (UK) with a bias in sustainable livelihoods. He has a lot of experience in entrepreneurship and business management through trainings and exposure. He will be pursuing his PHD in social entrepreneurships later in the year. Through his work with women’s groups in Kibera, Kawangware and Ruiru, STAMP director Kenneth Ndua observed that water borne diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea are common due to people drinking contaminated water from shallow wells, and that women in the community spend a significant amount of their time caring for family and friends who are ill. Most people cannot afford the extra fuel needed to boil water and sanitise it due to high living costs and low purchasing power: a typical family has an average income of USD 1.2 per day, of which USD 0.7 (~60%) is spent on fuel, and the remainder is spent on meeting other basic needs such as buying food and paying rent. In response to this challenge, Kenneth developed the Energy Conserving Stove (ECOS) – a fuel-efficient biomass stove featuring an innovative built-in jacket that can be filled with 7 litres of water. This feature both helps to insulate the stove, making it more efficient, and allows the user to simultaneously boil water whilst cooking. Several prototypes were developed before the design was finalized of stove ECOS Profession: - Program management, trainer of trainers / facilitator on: - gender, governance sustainable livelihoods development, social enterprise, energy, HIV and AIDS mitigation.

I have passion in my life, and it is all about finding ways to help people live better life. I started when I was 12 years old, participating as volunteer in a movement that helps families in rural communities in Mexico to find ways to have a better and happier life. I kept going every year for one week until I was 23, at that point is when I started noticing that the one thing that makes a family really change their life and their behavior is a house. A family cannot have health without a home, cannot send their kids to study if they don't have a descent place to sleep and to do their homework. Since that moment my passion has been finding ways to give families at the Bottom of the Pyramid the possibility to have a house that can really change their life and the way they live. On December 2007, I founded Construyendo Comunidades Integrales; witch is a nonprofit organization that seeks to help the most needed communities in Mexico, and taking volunteers to build houses for them. On January 2010, I participated in Unidos por Ellos A.C. This association was created to support Haiti after the earthquake. On March 2010 I founded Habvita that is a social business dedicated to developing housing projects based on self construction techniques. It is aimed towards BOP (bottom of the pyramid) social economic levels.
