Last day of meetings!
Today was my last day of meetings and I showed our powerpoint three times – one time in a taxi to Asad Mahmood from FINCA organization. It was the only time we could meet so we shared a taxi ride to Sanergy and talked on the way. Asad called another local person to connect us, so I then had a 4:00 meeting as well….
Their design team showed me their latest waterless urinal and wanted to know about our portable urinal design – We all use: the ping pong ball.
This is David Kuria and Dr. Kamithi Ng’ang’a, founders of EcoTact. We met in the afternoon and in addition to several great toilet designs which they shared with me, they produced a bottle of urine fertilizer and dried urine fertilizer made at the University of Nairobi several years ago. They were primed to scale up with many toilets AND to recycle urine. The issue is funding……….as is often the case.
Now I must get some sleep before the big bus ride tomorrow. This trip has been a bit more than I bargained for. And its all good…..
