Philippines: Faecal sludge management system


In a region, where the Alstom Foundation already funded a project, we aim to provide an affordable and sustainable system of sludge management (collection/treatment/conversion to fertilizer) to communities of Eastern Samar.
For this project, which will benefit over 280 persons directly (over indirect 1,220 beneficiaries), ACTED NGO and Alstom Foundation aim to:
  • increase awareness on sanitation issues at household level;
  • develop a social business model for sludge management using low-cost technologies;
  • set up social businesses ;
  • treat sludge used by farmers as fertilizer to increase production.
