Jackson's story

Jackson is a man of many endeavors. He is a businessman who owns a hotel and a duka (managed by his wife), a farmer who sells vegetables that are grown on his land outside of Nairobi, a father of two children aged three and ten, and the driver and owner of a truck that Sanergy uses to collect waste from Fresh Life toilets every day. His experience and observations with the waste management team at Fresh Life have allowed him to see the impact that clean sanitation can have on a community. Jackson wants to build toilets where he resides in the Mukuru informal settlement of Nairobi so that he can raise his living standard and provide a clean area near his neighbors. His hope is that beyond providing a sanitary option for his neighbors to use the toilet, running Fresh Life toilets will allow him to develop his businesses further. For example, he would like to buy another commercial vehicle.
