Promoting private sanitation venture to curb water-borne diseases and turn waste into energy and fertilizer in Kisumu, Kenya

The AWF is offering a €1.2 million grant to the Kisumu Water and Sewage Company (KIWASCO) to support an innovative project that will provide sanitation services for residents in the Manyatta settlement in Kisumu, Kenya, while creating business through the sale of fertilizers, biogas and energy as by-product of the sanitation collection. Women, particularly, stand to benefit as 55 per cent of the micro-loans to be set aside to help communities purchase household toilets will be allocated to them.
