Mary Wanja Thuo

Entrepreneur, Mentor & Author

Greetings! My name is Mary Wanja Thuo, managing director of Cityscape Trends Services and beyond that, I am a voice for the voiceless, a catalyst for change and a multiple award winner on matters regarding sustainability. I am also a wife, a mother, and a home manager.

At Cityscape Trends Services Ltd, I champion, advocate and lobby for decent work and decent pay, human rights, and economic growth for those at the bottom of the pyramid dwelling in informal settlements in peri urban. We do this by leveraging our core business, which is sustainable cleaning and maintenance services for offices and buildings, to address social and environmental impact.

I am passionately driven to lead from the uncomfortable realm and change the narrative of broken systems, and broken people in a broken society. Because I believe you cannot lead from a distance. But when you are close to the people, it’s when you get to understand where the shoe pinches. Additionally, I am a firm believer in change and of which I gear myself toward building positive impacts on society.

All said and done, I shine a spotlight on matters that matter. I do not accept the unacceptable. Instead, I step up when others are seated and speak up when others have zipped up, even if it means doing it alone.

My Life Philosophy



The philosophy is a call to everyone to open their senses to the world in which they live.


Disclose the acts that you have identified as wrong and should be corrected. Speak up!


I believe that the complementary act of speaking and acting goes beyond being powerful and authoritative.

Let's Work Together

Cycling2work: An Initiative Towards Socio-Economic Sustainability

This video describes the launch of the Cycling2work Program through a documentary series with Cityscape’s and Buffalo Bikes’ staff, who made the pilot program a success.

We need more uptake of bikes, especially for workers living in informal settlements. Currently, we are engaging government agencies such as Nairobi Metropolitan Service on matters to do with the cycling lanes around the city.

On the policy transformation, we have formed a partnership with a law firm to tweak the traffic act that was enacted many years ago and now it’s long overdue for change due to new road’s infrastructure, face-lift etc. We are also advocating for new cycling lanes, pedestrian walkways, and driveways of persons with disability to be aligned with SDG’s.

Media Coverage by Hope TV for Being a Local SDG Pioneer Champion

Through works and acts geared towards sustainability, the award by the Global Compact Network Kenya gave me a media spotlight at Hope TV, Kenya. Through such coverage, I am able to spread the gospel of sustainability to many more people.

I am motivated by creating a positive change through creativity, innovation, ideas, and crazy ambitious goals by changing the narrative of a broken society, broken people, and broken systems.  Lead from the front and not from a distance. You got to be close to the people to understand them and where the shoe pinches. 

The mission is about aligning Sustainable Development Goals and Kenya Vision 2030 to create the world I want to see before it is too late. We are living in troubled times and business leaders, world leaders, the private sector, academia, governments, and communities must come together in collaboration as a call to action, with ingenuity and skills to address the world’s biggest and most pressing humanitarian challenges worth solving.
