Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Anders Wilhelmson's work was prepared when Anders Wilhelmson was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Anders Wilhelmson is changing the way in which people in poor and crowded urban communities with inadequate sanitation facilities deal with human waste and offering a more dignified daily life. Working closely with such communities, he is providing new opportunities through single-use, biodegradable toilet bags to turn human waste into wealth and solve one of the most intractable problems in such areas.
