It’s with great pride that I announce Life Force Kiosks recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary! During our first year, we’ve purified over 580,000 liters of water and cleaned nearly 4,500 storage containers. We’ve also been publicly recognized by Stanford University and PATH (links to these case studies to follow shortly). I’m extremely grateful for our tremendous Kenyan management team, our kiosk vendors, my advisers, and all the donors who made this possible.
Now that we’ve proven the efficacy and consumer acceptance of the model, the coming year will focus on expansion. We’re currently trying to raise funding that would allow us to grow from 10 vendors to 50. If successful, we’d aim to purify about 8,000 liters of water per day, or almost 3 Million liters per year.
I look forward to sharing more stories from the field and hopefully some new pictures over the coming weeks and months. I encourage you to subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already to get e-mail updates.
