Explain your project in details:

Mamwaki Company seeks to use innovative ways to re-use fecal matter in bio-fuel production in slums of Kenya. It envisions working with county governments, sanitation and services companies and social enterprises operating in slum areas and conduct extensive research in using fecal matter and urine in developing bio fuels. The sludge from sanitation waste will be developed into valuable and affordable bio-products in form of round ball fuel briquettes that can be marketed and sold to households, small eateries and farmers utilizing chicken brooders. Other products to be developed include fertilizers and bio compost to be sold to crop and fish farmers. Utilization of human waste in making briquettes will offer many solutions to the population. Sanitation coverage in peri-urban areas and slums in Kenya is below 30%. While county governments and sanitation services providers are struggling to find adequate and affordable solutions. The increasing rate of urbanization, industrialization and economic growth over the years has led to increased energy demand. Other alternative sources are not clean, affordable or sustainable, such as kerosene, charcoal and wood fuel. These sources of fuel can no longer sustain domestic and industrial energy demand. Energy consumption occupies over 30% of the households budget. From an environment perspective use of fecal waste briquettes is carbon neutral and is a tool for achieving the SDGs related to affordable clean energy, poverty reduction and the environment. The project will also implement following project activities in the next 12 months:- (i) Procure machinery for carbonization of sludge &saw dust, milling & mixing and briquetting and source for feed stock (sewage sludge, sawdust and molasses for binder); (ii) Retain/Recruit/deploy fecal waste briquettes production crew, stockiest (retail shops), marketers and promoters of fecal waste briquettes; (iii) Produce & package fecal waste briquettes; (iv) Conduct marketing activities (branding, advertisement, sensitization), sales and distribution activities;

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Performance metrics will be developed to monitor the production volume, no of customers, sales volume, units sold, sales revenues, production costs, cash flows and profits/loss. Regular reviews will be undertaken to provide guidance regarding the strategies employed and their effectiveness in addressing the objectives of the project. The project will prepare quarterly financial and technical reports detailing the progress of implementation against the budget. In addition to this, the periodic reports will show planning for the next period with explanation of most significant deviations. The company will produce 250 tons per year and sell at-least 95% of the product and as well reach 10,000 households in one year. The business will have a positive effect on women & children who are disproportionately affected by use of traditional biomass fuels in Kenya. Women are responsible for fetching fuel, cooking & household chores. They are left with little or no time for productive activities. Social impacts to be measured include reduced budget for energy fuel for households, hotels & farms; reduced expenditure on fuel; time saved of cooking & heating; increased time for women & children to engage in other productive activities; improved kitchen cleanliness & reduced exposure (time, quantity) to smoke in kitchens hence improved health of women & children. Verification means to be used to confirm success include:- 1. Customers testimonials by-way of field visits to beneficiary locations to obtain first-hand qualitative & quantitative information on the benefits brought about by the briquettes use. 2. Income & expenditure statements of hotels& farms using human waste briquettes to analyze expenditure on fuel usage before & after and as well measure reduction on fuel expenditures. 3. Household budget surveys using health, economic activities, income, average consumption per capita & poverty levels as indicators will help in monitoring poverty reduction in targeted areas.

Sustainability and future plans

The commercially viable sanitation value chain is intended to be implemented through a local Public Private Partnership (PPP) between the local water and sanitation services companies and local social enterprises. The project opts for PPPs between water and sanitation services companies and social enterprises to allow for sustainability and scalability of the proposed businesses. In Kenya, currently we have multiple water and sanitation services companies spread into 47 counties. The water and sanitation services companies have the mandate and interest to engage in provision of sanitation and water services in, however, they will not go into production and sales of products made from human waste. Social enterprises, on the other hand, exist as for-profit entities which also seek to provide the community with essential services. This approach therefore focuses on financially sustainable solutions by including local private companies with a rich experience in the relevant sectors. The immediate goal for our business is to offer quality, affordable, available and clean energy for cooking and heating. To increase sales of briquettes from 2 to 100 tons (and possibly 250 tons) per year by the end of year five. Establish a 100+ retailed based distribution channel in five counties by end of year one. Commence production of pellets for the industrial and domestic market in 3 years period and grow in marketing capacity with the aim of gaining brand recognition in other parts of the county and other counties by the end of year 3. Commence production of bio-compost fertilizer and fish feed by the end of year two. Our strategy is to offer low cost and efficient human waste briquettes solutions at the bottom of the pyramid through an empowering last mile entrepreneurs regional retail network.

Happy to meet you all through this competition!!! and i have learnt many things by going through your idea.
The efforts you have taken to bring up this idea is stupendous and inspiring many budding entrepreneurs like me. We are competitors just for the sake of this competition, but on a broader picture we all are the future reformers and businessmen/ businesswomen. We shall be proud of ourselves as we are not selfish to think only about money earning, instead we integrate the talent with a Sustainable development goals and that is really commendable and a rarity in this generation. We as a whole set an example to various other budding entrepreneurs and make them feel that "Think Good Be Good Live Good". As i say in all my presentations "We should preserve nature for it to preserve us" and we are contributing to that saying someway or other, like in the form saving nature, changing people lives, changing the way we think and fostering humanity in each and every person.

So my dear friend, i hope this relationship with you will last long post this competition too as i believe the concept of group play, so we help eachother in putting forward the ideas to a better use. As a starting step of group play i have provided some motivational comments to u and i would be more than happy if you could find time and reciprocate some motivational comments too, as we both are sailing the same boat we know the pains we go through....

All the best for your future and stay healthy and happy.... :)

Dear Charles,
1. Business requires a passion. Without passion, business is inanimate object. Business is not seen how much profit you gets in the future, but how strongly you can survives in the business. Business is about learning, not planted and abandoned, and hopes to grow big just like that. Businesses require special treatment by maintaining commitment and consistency, and seeing it grow big slowly.
2. And in connection with that statement, what are your expectations and the extent of your efforts to develop and maintain your ideas / projects?
3. Would you share with me about that through the link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/

In scarcity of sufficient funds,they are unable to get best quality medication and eventually have to cash-in their life savings.
This not only puts them but their whole family on the line of poverty.

Dear Charles,
1. In connection with my previous questions about your idea or project, one way to achieve our goals and objectives continuously is to collaborate. There is a saying that to achieve our goals quickly is to do it yourself, but if you want to do it for a long-term purpose, working together is one of the most important things. My next question are:
a. Does your idea or project do the same thing?
b. With whom do you cooperate?
c. What is the form of cooperation you offer with them?
2. I am very happy if you will share with me and please give me comments or advise on my ideas about this through the link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/ Thanks.

It's really a nice idea. The way you designed it is much appreciable and compatible with the sustainable developments goals. However, I have some queries about your project:

1. What was your motivation behind conceiving the idea?
2. How much manpower do you currently have in your project?
3. Do you get any govt support ?
4. Do you think a non-profit can survive even without the help of government support?
5. How do you envision your project in the next 5 years?
6. How are you going to involve young minds in your project?

Thank you.

Dear Charles,
1. Previously thank you for your response and explanation for my previous question. I really appreciate your thoughts. If you dont mind, I want to ask what is the difference between your ideas and projects from others? or is there a specific theme of your idea or project?
2. I want to share my idea about "Eco-Cretivephoto Studio" called ec-studio. My business idea is through a hobby that I have done in one creative entrepreneurship like art photography. Through Eco-Creativephoto Studio, I want to educate people to change their characters for the better through photos. Through photos, there are people who can say something, communicate and speak and the most important thing to get good photos is the skills needed, patience and focus. My idea is collaboration between the concept of art photography, business, the concept of sustainable ethics and educational skills and development towards sustainability. This is what differentiates my ideas from others. If you want to share with me, please open this link: https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/ Thank you.

Wish you all the best.
Happy Day

Hi colleague I hope you're doing well. Your Idea is amazing and I'll be so proud to have the opportunity to meet each other. However, what is the key factor of your innovation? Is it your team, your business model, your process or your realistic milstones? Is your innovation a strong scalable entreprise? What could be your turnover in the next 3 years and what could be your gross margin? Is your innovation need a patent?

Hi Charles
"innovative ways to re-use fecal matter in bio-fuel production" that's fantastic project , many countries facing problems in fuel , and your project will helps a lot, good look and DO NOT GIVE UP ...NEVER.. if you would like to take a look on my project and your comments will make me happy:https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/20/11405/

Charles

July 17, 2018 10:12

Awesome Project...The human waste briquettes market is promising and customers are willing to purchase faecal matter briquettes if available in the market and would refer the product to friends and neighbours. The briquettes are compatible and performs well with the commonly used cook stove. Target customers prefer to purchase fuel in small quantities thus successful adoption will require smaller sized packages to match users budget and allow product trials.

This prpject work is great as it undertakes special efforts to motivate un-employed youth and women particularly from socioeconomic weaker sections and those living in slums for self-employment.

Charles Mwangi

July 17, 2018 09:48

Our project aims in using innovative ways to re-use faecal matter in bio-fuel production plus other valuable by-products in highly populated slums of Kenya. The sludge from the sanitation waste will be developed into valuable and affordable bio-products in form of round ball fuel briquettes that can be marketed and sold to households, small eateries and farmers utilizing brooders. Other products to be developed include fertilizers and bio compost to be sold to crop and fish farmers.

Charles Mwangi

July 17, 2018 09:47

The proposed project aims to work with budding women and youth entrepreneurs currently stocking faecal waste briquettes and currently residing in slums who are willing to improve their business acumen to address the challenges faced by women and youth entrepreneurs by supporting promotion of quality products, supporting sustainable financing, market development in order to promote womens economic empowerment while increasing availability of better quality products for consumers.

I love project... continue supporting more women. In Kenya Energy access is still very low with significant gender inequalities. Despite being more than 50% of the population, women in Kenya have remained excluded from energy projects development and in many cases they are not targeted.

SIXKNM

July 17, 2018 09:40

This project is great as it works with women and youth who are disenfranchised. The project is promising and we hope it will empower women and youth economically and ultimately improve their family livelihoods.

Low-income households predominantly using firewood and charcoal for cooking and heating; segment forms 45-50% of Kenyan population. -Hotels and restaurants predominantly using charcoal fuel in their businesses; Segment forms 5-7% of Kenyan population. -Chicken farmers predominantly using charcoal and kerosene for heating their brooders; Segment forms 4-5% of Kenyan population.

Use of firewood and charcoal is dominated by inefficient technologies and practices, resulting in wasteful consumption of wood and high costs to the users, particularly poor women, in monetary form and/or in collection time

Phyllis Nyaguthii

July 16, 2018 12:54

Unemployment in Kenya is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. Today, unemployment in Kenya stands at 40%, and 70% of those unemployed are between the ages of 15 and 35. The World Bank estimates that approximately 800,000 Kenyans join the labor market each year, and only 50,000 succeed in getting professional jobs. Not surprisingly, the high level of unemployment has been blamed for escalating incidents of crime and insecurity in the country. In fact, one out of every six Kenyans is unemployed and the situation is getting critical with each passing day. Thousands of young people are being channeled by learning institutions into the already saturated job market. The undoing of the most youth in is an over reliance on public and public sector employment instead of creating opportunities for self-employment that might even create opportunities for employment. Production and marketing of human waste briquettes is expected to generate job opportunities for self-employment in the action areas.

Charles Mwangi

Women are also the main procurers and consumers of firewood for domestic use and generally have very limited access to modern, clean and efficient energy technologies. Consequently women spend considerable amounts of time and energy involved in the drudgery of gathering fuel, leaving little time for other productive activities, and are exposed to high levels of air pollution and associated illnesses related to smoke from fuel-wood fires,

SIXKNM

July 16, 2018 12:35

The backdrop against which this project is being proposed is characterized by emerging serious challenges facing the un-employed women and youth living in slums and energy sector in Kenya: the increase in un-employment for women; the increase in population; decelerated economic growth; over dependence on traditional biomass energy and increasing poverty levels.

SIXKNM

July 16, 2018 12:32

From an environment perspective use of faecal-waste briquettes is carbon neutral. The bigger proportion of alternative fuel is sourced from unsustainable supplies and variable due to tight regulation of forests thus increasing demand for briquettes. The human waste briquettes uniquely satisfy needs born out of the dissatisfaction with current fuels: smoke emissions, price and efficiency.

Charles Mwangi

July 16, 2018 12:27

Over-reliance on limited biomass energy resources has a disproportionately higher impact on women, majority of whom live below the poverty line. Women are the main procurers & consumers of firewood for domestic use & generally have very limited access to modern, clean & efficient energy technologies. Consequently women spend considerable amounts of time & energy involved in drudgery of gathering fuel, leaving little time for other productive activities, & are exposed to high levels of air-pollution & smoke related illnesses. Dissemination of faecal waste briquettes will go a long way in conserving the environment. The project also contributes towards SDG1, 3, 6 and 7 & the Kenya Vision 2030.

July 12, 2018 12:01

Briquettes is a wonderful cooking source. You need a lot of campaigns to address Social barriers of using human fecal for cooking. Otherwise, some people may refuse to eat food because of psychological perceptions of human fecal matter.

Your team has experience in making briquettes and I know you will succeed.

Serah Kiarie

July 5, 2018 11:21

This project will have an impact on the women who spend most of their time in the kitchen using the traditional fuels that are smoky, unhygienic and unaffordable. The briquettes will help majority rural based households to reduce firewood and charcoal consumption translating to income savings. Women and girls who spend majority of their time fetching firewood in insecure places will have more time for their productive use.

James mwangi maina

Great project and is most needed in Africa setups and will contribute to CO2 emissions reduction. The project will also create employment for the youth living in Kenyan slums.

July 2, 2018 13:31

I too have posted a project idea within this youth citizen entrepreneurship.

Your project idea is very inspiring and perhaps there is a way that we can work together to benefit both of us and ultimately the people we want to help/work with on their journeys toward more knowledge, power, control and happiness in their lives.

However there are ways we can help each other out right now within this youth citizen entrepreneurship competition
Are you aware that each of us here within the youth citizen entrepreneurship can be become members of each other's teams?

It is not hard to do and it is a good thing to do so that you and I can each share with each other and show the community that we are working together in support of each other - since there are so many things we share in common as far as what we want our projects to do for our peoples.

I would be happy to become a team member with you in support of your project, if you would like to do the same with me.

Once we make that kind of connection then we can proceed ahead as the next few months unfold in support of each other and our projects.

It's a pleasure to meet you in this environment. It is good and challenging to be here reaching out around the globe to others in support of a better life and a better world for us all.

Enjoy your day!

Charles,
Bio-fuel is one of the future fuel. You are using a different way to make bio product using bio fuel. Also your business model and implementation plan is good. Such a nice initiative.

June 26, 2018 11:35

This project turns the sludge from sanitation waste into valuable and affordable bio-products in form of round ball fuel briquettes that can be marketed and sold to households, small eateries and farmers utilizing chicken brooders.

June 25, 2018 12:11

Hello Charles Mwangi ,
I'm doing research about Entrepreneurship
I have two questions about your idea:
1) Did you make the idea on your own or with the help of a team?
2) Do you have a plan to find funding? Where do you start? Are companies or people targeted by your idea?
* Please see my idea and give me your opinion about it.

June 21, 2018 14:24

Hi,

Exceptional project. You turn fecal waste in an innovative way to produce biofuels, used to make briquettes, fertilizers and other products. This means you are developing an energy source that can be used for cooking, for electricity etc.

Best Luck
