Job Description

MamaToto is an early stage social enterprise that provides modern cloth diapers and laundering services across all income levels in Nairobi, Kenya. These diapers improve sanitation and lead to less disease while saving the environment from disposable diaper waste. Parents in Nairobi rely on handwashing cloth diapers and generally lack the proper facilities to fully sanitize the diapers and outdoor space to dry the diapers. Parents will register for diapers and laundry service via our website, app, USSD coding, or convenient kiosk and schedule the quantity, size, and delivery/pickup of their needed cloth diapers. They will choose between home pickup/delivery or a convenient kiosk drop /pickup point.
