Kenya’s urge to adapt technology has instigated the import lesser quality and used devices, where massive numbers become obsolete in a short period of time and their disposal being hazardous to the environment. In its quest to preserve, conserve and protect the environment, CFSK established the first e-waste management facility in Kenya – the WEEE Centre located at Embakasi - Nairobi, for collection, scraping of fractions, recycling and safe disposal of all electronic devices and materials.
CFSK’s administrative and operational model has been acknowledged as an ideal, with ongoing efforts and attempts to replicate the same in the East African Community (EAC) region and other African countries. Owing to the successful implementation of its activities in Kenya, CFSK has aided in establishment of similar ICT programs in Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, South Sudan, Nigeria, Botswana, Ethiopia, Namibia, and DRC. In 2014, CFSK was nominated to host and implement the TechSoup Global Programme – which is a software donation program aimed at empowering the non-profit organizations in Kenya.

CFSK works in close collaboration with communities, private sector corporations, civil society organizations, and international charities and development partners for the long-term good of the nation. The success of CFSK is directly attributed to this close partnership, as a result of which an estimated 15 million individuals in Kenya now have access to information and communication technologies.
