Inkua Water Cart Design Competition Launched in JKUAT University

Africaqua Limited in collaboration with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and Water.org launched the Donkey Cart Design Competition at the University’s Juja Main Campus on the 28th July 2015. The event launch was attended by the University’s Vice Chancellor Professor Mabel O. Imbuga, Deputy vice chancellor Prof. Romanus Odhiambo, Africaqua CEO David Kuria, Water.org Rep. Elizabeth Were, the Engineering department staff as well as the Engineering students. The launch event was an opportunity to discuss the competition brief with the University students.

The Inkua Design Competition will provide a chance for the University’s Engineering students to make a positive difference to their local communities, which largely rely on donkey carts in water distribution and carrying goods. Key aspects expected to be improved in the design of the Inkua Donkey Cart are its Carrying Efficiency, Donkey ergonomics, Durability, Cost-efficiency and Gender Sensitivity. The Inkua Donkey Cart should be easy to use and operate for both women and men in the society.

The closing date for submission of the Inkua Cart designs is on the 15th September 2015.
