Position after YEP

M&E Expert at MDF Training & Consutancy, Kenya

YEP Role

My role is to start MDF´s Special Treat project in Kenya. The special treat is a project to improve the collection and treatment of waste water in Machakos and Kisumu County. We plan to upgrade the current waste water facilities to produce value from waste water, such as briquettes, liquid fertilizer and compost. Furthermore, we want to improve the current waste water collection by investing in exhausters that transport the waste water from the households to the waste water facilities.
