JALODBUST is a Hardware led Social Enterprise, registered as a company in Nov 2019 at Bangalore under the name of CHERRIES ENGINEERING AND INNOVATION INDIA PVT. LTD.

Our motto is ‘Eradication of Manual Scavenging through Technology’ and our focus is on wet-sanitation. We believe that Manual Scavenging needs to end and the social disparity and poor incomes of the sanitation workers needs to be resolved and that can happen only when the ownership of the sanitation equipment goes into the hands of the worker.

So our focus is on developing techno-economically viable Systems, affordable and with high efficiency so that Livelihoods can be created and Safety and dignity can be given into the hands of the worker himself.

At present, it is a 100% family owned enterprise with funds raised from an Accredited Foreign Investor through Convertible Note, to be converted into equity at a triggering event or 5 years from date of investment, which ever happens earlier.
