Rongo University on Monday, April 2022 partnered with Rongo, Awendo and Migori Municipalities with Leon Van Arendonk from Netherlands who is an expert in Bio Waste Management under the flagship of Black Soldier Fly Technology.

The team visited the science laboratories in the institution where the research program is expected to take place. A number of science students and other experts from the institution were involved in a training on how the Black Soldier flies can be used to manage the waste problem in this region.

Among the topics that were tackled were;

  1. Life circle of insects.
  2. Breeding of Black Soldier flies to be used in reduction of waste products.
  3. Economical importance of Soldier flies.

The project does not only aim at waste problem management but will also create job opportunities among the youth within and without the institution.
