Commitment to Water.org
"My commitment to Water.org is to bring change to Ethiopia and Ethiopians by working hard to position WaterCredit as a viable solution to our water supply challenges. I want to see families invest their own time and money in securing water and sanitation. Nothing is more demand-driven than what people choose to do for themselves and I will try my best to see this happen."
