Today, Fast Company released their annual list of Most Innovative Companies. We feel extremely honored to be listed as Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Africa. We're among other great companies like M-PESA, Samsung Electronics, Apple, and Netflix. WOW--We've looked at all of these companies for inspiration.

This award is because of you. Thank you!

Supporters like you have inspired and encouraged us to challenge the status quo. You have allowed us to focus on our mission and our milestones.  Without your support, none of this would be possible.

In the last year we have...

  • Gone from 6 to 32 staff (that’s 5.5x growth!)

  • Confirmed that customers like both their blue boxes and our service delivery method (we’ve had over 500 individual payments!)

  • Designed and sold some of the first charcoal briquettes ever made from human waste

  • Built a waste processing site that has the capacity to serve 2,000+ households

We have also recently been supported by innovative funders Segal Family Foundation and ViaWater. We're excited to work with these two groups who are helping us get the service-delivery model right before we push scale.
