Support :

With the assistance of the various stakeholders, permanent conservation of Ondiri is a reality. Furthermore, with the guidelines and support from Kiambu County Government, Water Resource Authority (WRA), Kenya Forest Research Institute (KEFRI), the probability of success is even higher. FOWK has the capacity and the will to conserve Ondiri; to make Ondiri a major revenue earner of Kiambu County Government; and to make Ondiri a major employer of women and the youth. Ondiri has the resources that have not been exploited including: birds, trees, reeds, leisure walks and cultural activities among others. With proper planning, FOWK is sure that Ondiri wetland could also become a first class world eco-tourist destination.

FOWK believes that Kenya must nurture the environment for posterity. This is the only way Kenya can guarantee sustainable development which brings about positive socio-economic change that does not undermine the ecological and social systems upon which communities and societies are dependent.5 Moreover, as Kuki Gallmann has noted, we must ensure "harmonious coexistence of man and the environment through new ways of combining development and conservation." We must strive to make Ondiri Wetland a World Heritage Site and indeed, a protected Site.
