I’d like to take a minute and thank everyone who donated to these fantastic water projects in Kenya. I have many friends back home who contributed money. Outdoor Research contributed a number of weatherproof jackets, shirts, pants, and hats, which I gave out at various slums and schools throughout Kenya. I have also received a generous donation from an organization who asked to remain anonymous.
The Kibera water kiosk project has great momentum and I’m very optimistic that we’ll receive government approval. I’ll then need to raise approximately $20,000 for the initial infrastructure including four 10,000 liter water tanks, the smaller 500 liter containers for all the kiosks, educational signs and materials, and more. Once the initial costs are paid for, the business is set up to be financially self-sustaining. If you would like to support this amazing project that will both reduce disease and create jobs in one of the largest slums of the world, please click on the following link:
When asked to specify the purpose, just type “Jeremy Farkas”. The donation is tax deductible and will go towards supporting a fantastic cause. I’d also like to note that all my time is donated so your donation will go directly towards project expenses. Thank you so much for your support.
