21 Jul El-Ekbal Language School
El-Ekbal’s project concentrated on establishing a start-up that provides a waste management solution for solid waste. Initially, they came out with a framework to collect all types of solid waste through a mobile application that they have designed on their own. However, the mentors suggested starting by 2 types of waste only (paper & plastic waste) then they can expand. Their work included 2 stages: first, they communicated with most of the recycling factories in Alexandria, Cairo and other governorates to establish a business model, in parallel, they proceeded with designing the mobile app (Ozzowa). In order to minimize the collection fees and complicated logistics at the beginning of their project, they started the collection process through their school.
