    Encountered her at a WimBiz conference and was so inspired by her quiet passion and the impact she has been able to make. Very strong, creative and committed young lady.

    Beautiful work. Inspirational woman. Can’t find MitiMeth’s website though – coming up blank. Only thing I found is a facebook page which hasn’t been updated since July 2013! How does one contact them to make purchases then?

    She is earning a living, creating jobs as well taking care of our environment by mere removing these plants.
    Kudos sister.

    This just warms my spirit. Not every time, import. Sometimes, produce locally.

    Ms Idachaba, is there an email address through which one can reach you? Thanks!

    A BIG thank you to BellaNaija for featuring MitiMeth. Working with Water Hyacinth and the communities affected by the infestation in Nigeria has been an amazing adventure. Waste upcycling unplugged :).

    WOW…I love this! I just saw it on my television: Africa….Women’s initiative. Its impressive…..Every experience in your life can be used somehow to help someone-somewhere. How do I contact Achenyo? I work with girls and young mothers so this could help us much. Keep on the great work. I salute YOU!
