Descriptif
In African cities, most of pit latrines can’t be properly emptied using conventional vacuum trucks. Even when well equipped, manual pit emptying is a very difficult, costly and time-consuming business. With over 60% of the urban population in Sub-Saharan Africa using pit latrines, improving efficiency of pit latrine emptying services is a key issue. Hence, Practica Foundation developed an innovative new pit emptying device called the PuPu pump which is designed to pump high viscosity sludge with debris as a low cost portable pumping unit, opening the door for small enterprises to offer improved and affordable desludging services in Africa The PuPu pump has been successfully tested in our workshop in the Netherlands and in real field conditions in Madagascar.

Activités
* Shipment, kick-off and technical training * Development of a test protocol and testing of the PuPu pump on a variety of latrines in different locations with the two pit emptying services ABASE and AVIF * Market assessment study for the PuPu pump in Ouagadougou including a situation analysis, stakeholder mapping and GIS mapping * Development of a business case for PuPu pump based services for the two pit emptying enterprises ABASE and AVIF * M&E and scaling activities including participation of Practica and ONEA in the FMS6 conference and the organization of a scaling workshop

Objectifs
Test the applicability of the PuPu pump to professionalize an affordable Fecal sludge management service
