Villeroy & Boch: Further Network Support for WASHking

For our WASHKing venture (which sells bio toilets in Ghana), this kind of “business to business” support is already at work. Villeroy & Boch, European market leader in ceramic ware,  became aware of our work and spontaneously decided to support WASHKing with a large delivery of toilets and sinks after Corona made the prices of these imported goods cost-prohibitive. And the renowned design agency Peter Schmidt Group has provided Dieudonne in Accra with an international team of designers to jointly make the WASHKing brand attractive for the West African market. Even if there is no money flow in these cases, it is precisely this kind of cooperation on equal terms and the exchange of expertise between North and South that underlies our approach.
