WorldChanging ally Emeka Okafor at Timbuku Chronicles reports on an award-winning program by the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology's Center for Innovations and Technology Transfer. Based in Rwanda's Cyangugu prison, KIST has built a 150 cubic meter "fixed dome digester", which converts human waste from 1500 prisoners into methane, which provides sufficient energy for half of the cooking needs of the 6000 inmate prison. The Ashden Awards for sustainable energy have recognized the project as a finalist in their "overseas awards" for sustainable energy. The designer of the facility, Ainea Kimaro, noted "I have been in this field all my life, turning problems into resources."
