    MDU prototype version 2

    • by  Henock Belete Asfaw
    • Since the first time we tested the MDU, some important changes have made based on the recommendations from the first testing. The changes include the addition of safety components in a vacuum system which has been the main sludge pumping mechanism option. The second thing is the mobility issue with the two-wheeled tractor. Though this has been a great idea, it faces the user friendliness with heavy mobility challenges, low speed, needs not only two people to operate but more people needed. Difficult to maneuver like crossing busy roads, bumpy roads especially when the tank is full. Hence; the two-wheel tractor is replaced by a 4 wheel-tractor as shown in the picture.

  • RSR Update


    • by  Linda Lilian
    • CABDA a partner organisation in the WASH and Learn Programme places community economic empowerment at the centre of making WASH projects sustainable. This effort is made with realisation that economically dis-empowered people cannot afford to pay for operation and maintenance. Thus CABDA takes on the initiative to create self help groups among the water users/community. These groups are constituted into savings and loans units with small enterprises, from which they generate income and contribute to the schools WASH fund. The WASH & Learn (W&L) Programme is a water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programme funded by Walking for Water 2016-2018, Rotary district 1570, Aqua for All and Waterloo Foundation (UFUNDIKO). Since 2016 the program has successfully made an impact towards sustainable school WASH in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania working with JESE, HEWASA and EMESCO (Uganda); CABDA (Kenya) and UFUNDIKO and TDFT (Tanzania).

    Partners meet at project site

    • by  Reinilde Eppinga
    • SNV and Greenergia K Ltd and their supporting organisation Illumina Africa met at the peninsula at Rare Beach Kisumu to discuss first steps and assess the site and equipment. Together with Deltares, the partners will work towards pellet production from water hyacinth and other locally available wastes for an adoption trial during which the local community will trial the use of the fuel-pellets in combination with improved cookstoves; gasifier stoves. In the weeks leading upto the meeting Greenergia started harvesting water hyacinth manually and a heap of dried water hyacinth was awaiting us. This will be used as raw material for the first samples of fuel-pellets. The companies are now focused on getting the water hyacinth harvester water-ready awaiting arrival of the water hyacinth in the bay.
