Johannes Kaveto Tjatjara

2018 Fellow from Namibia

Johannes Kaveto Tjatjara is the founder and CEO of Worldview Technology and Investments in Namibia. Worldview is a social enterprise that manufactures waterless toilets to provide an affordable, hygienic, and odorless alternative for people in developing communities with inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) infrastructures. Worldview's waterless toilets address the hygiene challenge of open defecation and do not require new, expensive sewage infrastructure to be built. They also turn human waste into compost, which can be returned to the environment as fertilizer. 'We aim to help families escape the devastating cycles of poverty and disease that drain vital health and economic resources through these toilets,' Johannes explains. Through his participation in the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, Johannes hopes to gain the necessary skills and experiences that will help accelerate the positive impact his company is making.
