Grace Gitiha

She is the founder and CEO of Green Eco Solutions Ltd based in Naivasha, Nakuru County, Kenya. They provide clean cooking solutions through the production and distribution of fuel briquettes. It was established in 2014 and incorporated in 2016. She draws her inspiration from the late Prof. Wangari Maathai’s Hummingbird story, ‘I will be a Hummingbird: I will do the best I can.’

She is doing her best to impact positive change in the environment motivated by the reality of forest destruction in search of a cooking fuel source. Their brand Makaa Tunza Briquettes translates to “charcoal that conserves”, is advantageous because it lasts 3-times more than ordinary charcoal, is cost-effective, smokeless, and has lower carbon emissions.

She feels accomplished working on something that is positively impacting that lady in the village and the environment.
