Himkaar Singh, Waste-to-Compost Entrepreneur | Engineer
I was trained as a Civil Engineer at the University of the Witwatersrand. While working in large corporates in Johannesburg and Durban, I gained insight into the broader infrastructure needs of the country – one of the main ones being Water Management. I left South Africa during the recent water crises - not to avoid the problem, but to find the solution. I lived in Germany, Vietnam and Jordan for 5 months each to experience different extremes of water management... I found what is one fundamental solution that we are slow to implement. So I have come back to South Africa to start a business with a model to improve our soil's ability to hold water, with a larger vision of food security through organic farming. I hope to inspire new thinking for African businesses during this journey.
