Sawa World Solution: Fuel Briquettes from Organic Waste

Sawa World Solution: Fuel Briquettes from Organic Waste

Sawa World Spark Nabunya Nulu has come up with a solution to the problems of finding fuel and getting rid of garbage that her community faces. By creating fuel briquettes using organic waste, Nulu and her community have an opportunity to come out of poverty, while reducing the amount of trees burned and waste dumped into local streams!

Through her “Garbage is Wealth” project, organic waste which would have otherwise been disposed of becomes the no-cost alternative to burning trees. With some simple filtering to remove unwanted substances, the addition of low-cost processing materials and the use of simple tools to shape the briquettes, Nulu has created opportunities for youth to earn incomes, and she encourages everyone to try it for themselves.
