Who We Are

The Biogas Taita Project is beeing run by a handful people who work hard for the project from day to day and is supported by at least twice as much who work on a voluntary basis.  Furthermore we trained dozens of masons into Biogas Technicians who, in turn trained additional workers.

We are now in the process of training entrepreneurs, installers and producers for our new iruwa solar water heating system enterprise and also this project has been developed with the support and input and energy of many volunteers.
