“I believe in the deployment of financing tools to solve the global water crisis. Having grown up in rural Kenya, I witnessed first-hand how families struggled to access safe water for basic household needs, and now through Water.org’s solutions, how access to financing has empowered them to not only access safe water and safe sanitation, but also improve their livelihoods.”
