In 2010, Living Earth Foundation launched the pan African Waste to Wealth programme. The project responds to specific challenges faced by poor people living in urban slums in Africa.
The programme encourages all sectors of society to develop collaborative solutions to tackle the challenges of waste management. We support entrepreneurs, micro enterprises, social ventures and community groups to generate an income through waste recycling, and to develop public private partnerships with local government to improve waste collection and waste management in poor slum areas.
Living Earth’s Waste to Wealth programme is funded by the European Union, the UK Government’s Department for International Development and Comic Relief, and is currently active in Cameroon, Nigeria, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Kenya.
