In August 2013, Living Earth Uganda in partnership with Lubaga Divisional Council, opened a “Waste to Wealth” information hub for the city of Kampala. The information centre is equipped with internet-enabled computers, technical training materials and equipment and recycled waste demonstration products.
The local council has taken on responsibility for ensuring that the centre has a full-time member of staff to support visitors. The centre aims to encourage more people across Kampala to take part in Waste to Wealth activities.
Following the success of the centre, similar information centres are planned for Cameroon and Nigeria and will be rolled out during 2014.
