Help academics with fundraising campaign to provide clean water to rural communities
A group of academics from the Department of Geography and Environment are fundraising to provide clean water to rural communities situated in Nakuru County, Kenya, and they need your help!
Accessing water is one of the biggest challenges faced by the communities within the villages of Lemolo B and Echareria, and the Nakuru Community Water project aims to enable these communities to install and sustainably maintain rainwater harvesting systems.
The UK team – which is made up of staff members from four universities who specialise in international development - are hoping to raise over £28,000 for the project through a Crowdfunding campaign.
Loughborough staff members Dr Joni Cook, Professor Ed Brown, Dr Long Seng To, Dr Jon Cloke, Surabhi Rajagopal and Dr Jon Leary are all involved with the project and are encouraging others to help publicise it by sharing online and with colleagues, friends and family. If you are interested in fundraising on behalf of the project, please contact the fundraising team by emailing Kenyawateraccess@lboro.ac.uk.
