Energy

Mother Earth — The renewable energy sector is growing rapidly as global demand for energy is increasing. 
TWI

Venture — Thika Way Investments was founded by German Engineers, Financial Experts as well as local entrepreneurs in 2015 to develop renewable energy projects in Africa, the continent of the future.

Project — Lake Victoria and our Homa Bay Biogas Project — This first project has dual objectives: to rescue Lake Victoria from its water hyacinths which is choking the lake’s wildlife and spoiling water resources, and to create a unique investment opportunity which is as environmentally friendly as it is economically rewarding.

Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by all United Nations Members at the UN summit in New York and defined 17 development goals (SDG) which shall – for developed and developing countries – link the principle of sustainability with economic, ecological and social development. The goals are addressed towards all communi- ties, countries and companies with international business. For the first time, reduction of pov- erty and sustainable development have been united in a global partnership.

HELIUM

Venture — Hogback Resources GmbH was founded by NASCO AG, NASCO AG Management and KABENA to develop the Hogback Helium field in New Mexico, US. NASCO, NASCO management and KABENA are uniquely positioned to unlock significant value by executing its specialized competences in Helium extraction and field development.

Project — Hogback Helium. The Hogback fields are located in one of the top helium reserves in the world. Current estimates of helium content in the natural gas mix range between 3% and 6% compared to an exploration industry average of 0.5% – 1%. Positive market conditions of helium and its unique properties have constantly driven world demand, whereas supply of helium has been fragile, thereby pushing prices for years to come.


Key Project Data at a Glance
  • Among the top 20 US Helium fields
  • Size: 4,480 acres
  • An estimated 50 Bcf of natural gas
  • An estimated 2.5 Bcf of Helium
  • A proven 450 MBO

Charity

Art-Meets-Charity is about raising money through art forms such as photography, paintings, and picture books. Currently we’re working on a project to help children in need. In cooperation with SOS Children Village (SOS-Kinderdorf) in Windhoek, Namibia, we’ve created an illustrated book of photographs taken at the SOS village, and bound in a modern style. KABENA funded the developing and printing of this book in September 2018. Proceeds go to the SOS-Kinderdorf registered charity.

There exist many projects globally to help disadvantaged children— but unfortunately, not enough is being done! Art-Meets-Charity shows that people can accomplish anything if they work together. Luckily, a lot of people want to be part of something like this, but are just looking for the right connections. Also, the help needed is sometimes so far away.

This project helps to bridge the geographical and emotional gap by depicting the children’s lives in a picture book. The Art-Meets-Charity initiative was founded based of an idea from a married couple, the Nagys, and with help of many other people including SOS-Kinderdorf.
