T4T was founded by the late Eng. Dr Moses Kizza Musaazi (1951 – 2018), a father and a teacher who could not stop innovating for the good of people and the environment.
His research work has roots from Uganda’s prominent Makerere University where he worked from 1975 till his death.
He was inspired by the need to fulfil the basic needs of households, the girl child and to protect the environment amongst other categories. He tackled general situations such as Low-cost housing construction, Rain Water harvesting, Menstrual Hygiene Management, access to clean water, solid waste management, food security etc.
He was a mentor who inspired his staff and students to think and develop practical solutions to social challenges. In response to these challenges, he developed appropriate technologies.
T4T was born and registered in 2008 as a vehicle to provide appropriate technology to solve household needs, promote menstrual hygiene and to improve waste management around Africa.
“I think things through from beginning to the end, because when people need this, they’ll also need that, and there’s always a great need and to waste something is a catastrophe.”
Eng. Dr M. K. Musaazi.
