Strengthening solid waste management is an integral component of our urban WASH Program. Through our interventions, we support waste collection efficiencies and enhancing reuse, recycling, and reprocessing. We do so by engaging unemployed youth and women through technical, entrepreneur and safety trainings. We also create access to financial institutions for entrepreneurs who transition from waste collection to re-processing and recycling businesses. In Addis Ababa, some groups have already transitioned in to waste reprocessing.
