Work in Progress
The new Gearbox space is hustling and bustling: Our newly partitioned board room receives a unique ceiling and our electrical engineers are busy with preparing the leased office spaces for Usafi Comfort and Village Industrial Power (VIP) by fixing the lamps and electrical trunkings. Another milestone we achieved is the basic completion of the workshop on ground floor – the painting is done and the lamps got installed so that everything shines bright now.
Those achievements make the next week being full of exciting news: the ground floor will be cleaned; safety marks will be set up and all our machines will find their place in the workshop. We will paint and furnish the board room. And we will produce our first self-designed co-working space table and test it! We welcome you to be part of our progress and follow our daily work on Instagram and Co.

The second presentation was from Dr. Mbatia Betty of Technical university of Kenya. Her presentation was about production of biodiesel from waste cooking oil.
