I am Ssemitego Ismeal, a 24 year old male Ugandan and a holder of an ordinary diploma in electrical and electronics engineering.
I started my studies at Lutengo p/s from where i sat my P.L.E in 2002.
I joined the Lutengo sec sch, in 2003 where i completed my ordinary level in 2006, i then sat in a year and i joined advanced level in 2008 at Kasawo sec sch from where i was awarded a Uganda dvanced certificate of Education in 2009.
In 2010, i joined Kampala Polytechnic Mengo where i did a 2year in the above mentioned profession.
I have worked with different technical companies as a technician e.g Volta Consults, karchorf´s technicians and Muttico.
In the coming weeks in April, project members of eSeeker Uganda, Engineers Without Boarders Stockholm and Education Finder will go to Uganda to start the Renewable energy education in Uganda. We will complete the training program, train the teachers and accept some students to the course.
We will report on the training when we start.

INUG has started a new project with our partner Yennenga Progress in Environmental review for environmental management.
Engineers without Borders (INUG) Stockholm supports our partner Yennenga Progress with knowledge in environmental assessment and environmental management to develop environmental goals and policies.
Yesterday was the first meeting with the group and this was discussed
- Yennenga Progress environmental description needs to be studied so that next meeting can be focused on structured brainstorm around clear and high goals, measurement and suggestions.
- What areas in ISO 26000 that relevant for the project.
- How have other companies done this, we will look for inspiration to have some good ideas and find formulas that feels good for our cause.
After finding the structure of the governing documents, we look upon templates and checklists for the organization. We also talked about a “reward system” to encourage the companies we work with to take greater responsibility for the environment, that in each year’s environmental report highlighting a specific project during the years excelled in environmental work, and raised the issue of climate compensation.
This is a cross post from our partner Yennenga Progress Secretary General Stina Berge. INUG are supporting Yennenga Progress in deepening a dam in Burkina Faso. Engineers from INUG have calculated the digging that has been made by a group of teenagers in May this year.
When I left Nakamtenga in May to return to Sweden for the summer, the landscape was okra colored, and the animals was in desperation searching for something green to fill their empty stomachs. The boys were still digging to deepen the dam.
When I came back the 15th of August the picture was completely different. The grass was dark green and juicy, the cereals on the fields were already more than a meter high. The Nakamtenga dam was filled to the rim with water – a sight for the gods. I was so happy because I had been afraid that the digging to deepen the dam we had done in May should damage the impenetrability of the bottom layer. Had my fear been unfounded?
Now a month later, I am not as sure it did not. During the month we have had several good rains, but in spite of that, the water level in the dam has gone down a bit to fast. That is a bit disturbing. Nevertheless, nothing can be done now. We have to wait some month before we can draw any conclusions.
Sustainable Energy for All is a new initiative of UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon that sets three concrete goals for humanity to achieve by 2030. This includes ensuring universal access to modern energy; doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
For the next three days we are rolling out infographics that explain each of these three goals, why they are needed, and how we can achieve them.Yesteday’s infographic explained the energy efficiency goal. Today’s takes a look at what it takes to bring modern energy access to every corner of the globe. Read more
Engineers Without Boarders Stockholm are working with training solar entrepreneurs starting in Uganda. We hope this is one successful way of achieving Sustainable Energy for All.
1) Vilken kompostlösning har gruppen kommit fram till och varför?
Just nu har vi valt att fokusera på en komposteringsteknik som kallas för “box-composting”. Vi valde box-composting för att komposteringsprocessen då sker i flera mindre lådor istället för att ligga direkt på golvet, vilket ger ett trevligare intryck av anläggningen samt att det är lättare att hålla rent. Förhoppningsvis minskar detta risken för dålig lukt och ovälkomna gäster (ohyra).
2) Vilka fördelar kommer denna lösning att innebära för berörda i Freetwon?
Anläggningen kommer förhoppningsvis ge intrycket att även fast man hanterar avfall behöver det inte se ut som en skräphög. Vi vill ju sprida kompostering som ett alternativ till hållbar avfallshantering och då är det viktigt att invånare i Freetown får ett positivt intryck av kompostering.
Tekniken är enkel och för de som arbetar med komposteringen innebär det mindre arbete eftersom materialet inte behöver vändas lika mycket jämfört med andra komposteringstekniker.
3) Vad är de tre viktigaste parametrarna för att komposten ska bli lyckad?
* Råmaterial av god kvalitet. Skit in = skit ut, som man brukar säga.
* Rätt temperatur, fuktighet och syretillförsel under komposteringsprocessen.
* C:N-kvoten dvs. förhållandets mellan kol och kväve. Vid överskott på kol avtar nedbrytningsförloppet. Vid överskott på kväve avgår kväve i form av ammoniak.
