My name is Modou, and I’m an expert in waste recycling and renewable energies. I’m 35 years old, married, and I have one daughter. I’d like to do something for my home country by improving waste management in Senegal. In 2017 I came back to Senegal from Germany with some good ideas. I have a master’s degree in Renewable Energy Engineering, and my thesis was about waste management in Senegal. This is a good foundation for my project.
My master’s degree at the Polytechnic College (EPT) in my home town of Thiès took me to Germany at the end of 2016. There I was assisted by the organisation Greening Africa Together to work on concepts and ideas for combating climate change. This organisation helps young people in Africa to develop sustainable options for our continent.
