In October I will be starting a nine-month volunteering placement in Naivasha, Kenya with Engineers Without Borders UK - joining their partner organisation Sanivation.
Sanivation install modern container-based toilets in people's home and produce fuel briquettes made from the faecal sludge they collect. I will be supporting them to develop and expand their treatment processes.
Engineers Without Borders UK will be providing me with a stipend to cover living expenses in Kenya. I'll be relying on my own savings for everything else. Your generous donations will go directly to Engineers Without Borders UK to support all of their projects globally and in the UK. Thank you for your support.
Sanivation is a social enterprise dedicated to improving the overall dignity, health and environment of urbanising communities in East Africa through delivering clean, safe and efficient sanitation services.
