PdP Project Portfolio

Team Unicef (2011-12)

How to improve WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) in schools in Uganda? How to provide a sustainable solution for East Africa? The subject is big and scattered but the solution must be simple and scalable.

The answer is not a single product but a whole system to make the difference, improving people’s life quality. In this cooperative work between three Universities we are trying to find an African solution for an African problem. We are focusing in hand- washing, water transportation and education. The task is not easy but we have taken the challenge!
