Ms. Janet Museveni, First Lady of Uganda, paid a visit to Waste Concernís Community Based Composting Project in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Ms. Janet Museveni, First Lady of Uganda, paid a visit to Waste Concernís Community Based Composting Project in Dhaka along with her delegation on June 7, 2005. Mr. A. H. Md. Maqsood Sinha and Mr. Iftekhar Enayetullah, Co- Founders of Waste Concern, welcomed her and the delegation. Waste Concernís simple low-cost model of converting organic waste into biofertilizer has highly impressed the first lady during her field visit in the Waste Concernís composting plant. The first lady showed her keen interest to replicate the model in Uganda, which can create new jobs for the urban poor, clean the city as well as can replenish the soil with organic matter. Here it should be mentioned that Waste Concernís model of waste management is being replicated in 20 cities of Bangladesh by the Government of Bangladesh with the support from UNDP, UNICEF, several NGOs and private sectors.

Ms. Museveni extended an invitation to Waste Concern to look at the opportunity of replicating the model in Uganda. Waste Concern is honored to receive the invitation.
