Technology for Tomorrow Ltd
Technology for Tomorrow Limited (T4T) is a registered company in Uganda. Its mission is to apply Appropriate Technologies (AT) for the betterment of the environment and humanity.
T4T has many products designed to promote health and safety for urban as well as rural areas in Africa. It also has people dedicated to ensuring proper and sustainable application of the Appropriate Technologies.
The Bio-sand Water filter uses the simple process of natural water filtration first invented by Canadian Professor David Manz. Water is moved by gravity through a series of layers of organic matter killing and absorbing deadly diseases and unwanted substances. Waterborne diseases such as cholera and typhoid are significantly reduced along with silt, sand and organic matter.
Many of the products work with the culture and behaviours of the people which allows the technologies to be easily assimilated into communities. The results have not only been successful, but have changed the behaviors of people in poverty to sustainably increase health and safety.
T4T has its origins at the Faculty of Technology, Makerere University, where its founder, Engineer Dr. Moses Kizza Musaazi, is a senior lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering. After dedicating 15 years to Research and Development in AT, Dr. Musaazi found it logical to form T4T as the implementing company. T4T carries out its work on three fronts namely:
1. Installation and commissioning of AT
2. Full technology transfer.
3. Training of Trainers.
