Training the local private sector in Simple, Market based, Affordable, and Repairable Technologies

The MU SMART Centre Ethiopia

Currently there are 3 SMART Centres (Tanzania, Malawi, and Mozambique). The Centres exchange experiences and create leverage. They are coordinated by MetaMeta and supported by NGOs including Aqua for All.

To become a member of the SMART Centre Group, conditions apply;

Quality in technologies
Most SMARTechs are simple but a hard lesson learned is; “Simple is not easy”. Details are important. Products disseminated via a SMART Centre need to be technically sound and approved by the SMART Centre Group.

Quality in training and management
Manuals for and trainers in production, installation etc. should be of good quality. Good management is essential and a SMART Centre should generate income and become self sustaining.

A SMART Centre cooperates with a local partner in each country, agrees with the vision and mission of the SMART Centre Group and cooperates with the other members.
