Wastics

Judith Nantume grew up in a slum in Kampala that would regularly flood during heavy rains because Uganda does not have a functional waste disposal system and trash end up on the streets and blocking the sewage systems. Since slums in Uganda are located normally in the lowest points of the city, they would flood as the water would not be able to follow the trenches.

Wastics is recycling plastic waste to create school desks for village schools. The Startup has won several competitions for their innovative approach towards ecological sustainability.
