About Us: Sanergy is an award-winning social venture, based in Nairobi, Kenya, that makes hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban slums for everyone, forever. 

Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of franchised micro-entrepreneurs, who operate low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities – called Fresh Life – as small businesses. 

We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, training, marketing and business analytics. We collect the waste every day and safely remove it from the community.

You will be a dynamic, experienced and imaginative customer focused individual, able to develop innovative solutions to ensure a smooth roll out of the phase 2 pilot of over 200 toilets and stabilise ongoing operations in Limuru.
