In 2016, we launched our first pilot project in Kenya. The social enterprise, the Toothpick Company Limited, was registered in 2018 and works in partnership with the German NGO, Welhungerhilfe, and the Kenya Agriculture and Livestock Research Organization. In 2019 we had 418 demonstration plots in western Kenya to show farmers our technology and its impact. Product registration in Kenya is currently underway in order to register the product Kichawi Kill by spring 2020.

Currently, we are in Kakamega, Siaya, Kisumu, Vihiga, and Bungoma counties in Kenya. All of these counties are in Western Kenya, where the bulk of Striga is in Kenya.
