Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
This description of David Auerbach's work was prepared when David Auerbach was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
David Auerbach has created a scalable, market driven, community-based model for sustainably providing access to hygienic sanitation in densely populated and unplanned slum settlements. By creating value from waste, David is changing what it means to work in waste collection and ultimately building a network of committed citizens who want to change their community and who can earn a living doing so.
