Life Force Kiosks just completed its fifth month of live operations and we continue to see fantastic results. I was pleased with our first month’s performance of purifying 20,000 liters of water. However, that number pales in comparison to this month’s outstanding result of 55,000 liters of drinking water purified. Since launching in late May, we’ve cleaned over 200,000 liters of drinking water! We’ve also performed 2,230 water storage container cleanings.
While Steve, Freddy, and I are very pleased with the impact we’re making in Kibera, we’re hungry for more. We’re currently looking for funding opportunities that will allow us to expand the number of vendors offering our services. It will not be operationally difficult for us to double or even triple the number of vendors in our network. I’m confident that doubling the number of vendors will more than double the amount of water we can purify, as our expansion will give our organization even more credibility and convince some skeptics to give us a try. Plus, the more people in a given social circle adopt a product, the more social pressure holdouts start to feel to join in.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation and help give the people of Kibera access to clean drinking water, please visit www.LifeForceKiosks.org. As always, we appreciate your support. It really does make a difference.
