Tom Osborn

My name is Tom Osborn. I noticed that lack of clean, healthy and green fuel for Kenyan households led to numerous issues including deforestation, high cases of respiratory illnesses and large emissions of carbon (IV) oxide into the atmosphere. My team and I utilized unused agricultural wastes like maize stalks, coffee husks, bagasse and sawdust to provide green charcoal briquettes as an alternative to wood charcoal. After high school, I decided to defer college for two years to commit to GreenChar. I am now a 2015 Forbes 30 under 30 for Social Entrepreneurship, youngest Echoing Green Fellow, and an award-winning Anzisha Prize Fellow. I have appeared on CNBC Africa, CNN, KTN and other TV/news sources and writes about social enterprises and climate change for the Huffngton Post.
