Re: Sanitation entrepreneurs making business out of Faecal sludge

Dear Machrine,

Thank you for your continued posts. Would there be a way to know some of the challenges that the sanitation service is facing especially while working in National Water and Sewerage Corporation area of jurisdiction? Have they come into an agreement on how to operate or how is it happening?

Regards
Charlotte

I have sent out an email to one of his close associates asking her to share his email contacts. I will get back to you as soon as I receive a response.

Dear Mr Mbirungi,
What a great article!

We implement decentralised waste water treatment facilities and I was hoping if it would be possible to receive Isaac Turinawe's email address, to discuss business opportunities.

Kind regards,

Sanitation entrepreneurs making business out of Faecal sludge

An interesting article published by the  Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council - WSSCC provides great insights into how feacal sludge is opening doors for business.
 


According to the article, a new breed of Ugandan sanitation entrepreneurs is making a business out of emptying pit latrines in Kampala. Using hand-powered pumps known as gulpers, they extract faecal sludge from pits across the capital city where a handful of the population is served by a sewerage network.Isaac Turinawe’s Terikigana Sanitation Services operates in the suburbs and slums around Kampala’s central division. With start-up support from Water for People, Turinawe’s business now has six employees. They pump sludge into barrels for transport in the company’s small truck to the sewerage treatment plant in Lubigi, on the outskirts of the city.In a recent visit to the treatment plant, Ms Hind Khatib-Othman, Chair of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC), had the opportunity to talk with Mr Turinawe about his business.

Read  what the WSSCC Chair learned about sewage disposal on her visit to Uganda
