Quoting a Kenyan proverb ...
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, rather we borrow it from our children."

The principal aim of this website is to provide information on asbestos, its risk and to initiate programs to reduce the fourth wave of asbestos diseases which has already begun, and inevitably will become more insidious if exposure to asbestos in public and private buildings, schools and the environment is not abated.
