Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements. Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities – called Fresh Life Toilets. 

We franchise the toilets to community residents, who run them as commercial toilets; landlords, who offer them as a value-added service to their tenants; and schools, to ensure children always have access to a safe sanitation option. We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, business analytics, training and aspirational marketing and branding. We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community for treatment. We convert the waste into valuable end products, such as organic fertilizer and insect-based animal protein, which we sell to Kenyan farms. We launched our first toilet in November 2011, and we now have a network of over 2,700 active Fresh Life Toilets serving over 100,000 urban residents every single day. We collect and convert over 6,000 tons of waste every year. 

Sanergy transforms the way emerging cities like Nairobi handle their waste. We have created a zero-waste model to clean up fast growing cities by converting polluting organic and sanitation waste streams into valuable products that increase economic growth and promote sustainable agriculture. We safely collect and treat 12,000 tons of organic waste annually – sanitation, municipal, and agricultural waste – and convert it into valuable products: insect-based proteins derived from black soldier flies for animal feed, organic fertilizer, which restores soil quality and structure, and biomass fuel briquettes. This model ensures waste that would otherwise harm the environment is transformed into high-quality sustainable products. At the same time, we have built a team of 250 dedicated team with diverse backgrounds. Our work has been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World Doing Social Good and one of the 10 Best Companies in Africa
