As we move towards the end of 2019, we have a lot to be thankful for! We are continuing to expand our field presence in new countries and bring our solar kiosk technology to new regions of the world, as a result, our team has been very busy. We have also initiated a new 'cluster' approach, placing solar kiosks in adjacent villages and striving for universal coverage in regions where we work. Whilst the UN standard for access to safe is a 30-minute walk, our goal is provide safe water to communities within a few steps.
We are pleased to introduce our newest member, Mr. John Otieno.
John is our newest member of the Project Maji team based in Nairobi. Mr. Otieno is our Project Manager and our eyes and ears on the ground. Having worked in the WASH sector for over three, he brings his skills in Quality Assurance and project management to our global team. John is passionate about providing safe water throughout Kenya and has completed volunteer work focused on peri-urban water distribution sites in Nairobi and research in water crisis and its contribution to conflicts. John is also an active member of the Community Upgrading Committee, a Kenyan county government initiative. He holds a degree in Economics and Statistics from the University of Nairobi. We are extremely excited for John to join our team of dedicated staff around the world.
Please expect more details on all of our accomplishments, new partnerships, and staff in the coming weeks.
Thank you again for your contribution to the Project Maji Foundation. We truly value your role in allowing us to do our work and expand our footprint.
P.S. If you reside in Dubai, we would love to see you at the sixth annual Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Summit on November 11th at 3pm, where Sunil Lalvani, will take the stage and discuss how sustainable business can end water poverty.
