Visit by Japanese Politicians

Three members of the house of councillors in Japan (equivalent of the Senate in Kenya) visited BRIGHT Project on 11th September 2013. The politicians were in the country to assess projects supported under the Japanese Official Development Assistance (ODA) funds. In their report, BRIGHT Project was lauded as successful.

To mark the occasion, two trees were planted at IEET. One of the trees planted was Croton, a common tree in Kenya used as a natural fence. The tree has great potential in renewable energy as it can produce biodiesel.
