    Toilets for All (South Africa) is the winner of the #MazarsforGood Innovation Challenge 2015 in the “For Society” category!
    They want to provide a unique, all-in-one portable plastic eco-toilet design* that is more durable, greener and healthier to use for impoverished families who do not have access to sanitary sewage disposal. Litter becomes a currency for the families to get these toilets and use them. Businesses can use these toilets for advertising and education purposes as well as tax benefits from their investment in Toilets for All.
    They will use the USD 20,000 to come up with a prototype of their eco-toilets, develop future patents and manufacture an initial batch of 10 toilets for a pilot in Kayamandi and Lynedoch (Stellenbosch). Congratulations to Jade, Matt and Gerard!

    The Project consists of a bicycle-mounted container design that will allow the easy transportation of goods and the provision of services, attached to an energy generating mechanism and a tracking device that provides real-time analytics. This mechanism generates and stores energy through the pedaling motion and the movement of the wheels to provide electricity for small appliances and electronic devices. The generator and container will be easy to adapt to any type of bicycle frame. These group of features together with a bicycle is what we call The SAND Bike.
    They win USD 2,000 for their idea.

    CollaborAfrica (South Africa) takes the 3rd place in the Society category. It is a platform gathering willing learners, knowledge owners and businesses. They provide courses to willing young African learners, in skills of their choice and ability, wherever they are, at no cost to them – broken down in ‘commuting’ or ‘lunch time’ bits. CollaborAfrica offers relevant skills of choice, that will enable the African youth to start-up micro businesses.
