This time we have breaking news! We got visited “physically” by Canadian students lead by Zee and their professors lead by Prof. Anne. These are extremely kind people. They decided to support the establishment of one Nanofilter Kiosk at VETA Training Institution in Njiro Arusha, Tanzania.

Then they did something extra-ordinary: They decided to donate 55 water bottles of 20 lts to all VETA students; as you can witness in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gR_nNa4qLUQ

Now the students can refill their bottles at the Nanofilter kiosk at a price of Tsh. 3,000 (about $1.13) while the market price is double ($2.25). This is a big win-win for the students and for our Nanofilter entrepreneur.

Please kindly feel free if you want to know more about this approach and how it may transform the lives of the local women entrepreneurs who are opening the new (upgraded) Nanofilter Centers. The establishment of each new center costs about USD 5,000 and it serves about 100 people with clean and safe water while creating job to the operators (like this one at VETA) and the distributors of the purified water. The operator can make revenue of at least USD 10 per day; equals to above USD 250 per month. They pay a fix commission of USD 40 to TAHUDE Foundation at the end of the month and keep the remaining money as their final income. This USD 40 is used to cover the operations costs of TAHUDE and is also used for the filter maintenance/service. THANKS for being part of this success story.

Let me know how you would like to be involved more in this year. You may directly contact me via my email: hilonga@gmail.com
