“Words cannot describe how excited I am for our City's proposal to be selected as one of 15 winning proposals to be supported for implementation. The pinnacle of my happiness is anchored on the fact that the panel of high-level international judges deemed our proposal worthy of implementation.” Hon. Samuel Pyne, Mayor of Kumasi
Addressing waste management through youth employment
To address the problem of poorly maintained public toilets or open defecation, Kumasi is training unemployed youth to build low-cost toilets for households without them. The toilets use bio-digesters and other toilet technologies that are compatible with the city's infrastructure, allowing the waste to be processed into organic manure for use on farms.
