Experience before YEP

Aqua Clara Kenya, Training and Technical Support Officer (TTSO)

My responsibilities included offering trainings and technical support on use of Membrane and Biosand Filters to purify drinking water. I trained sales agents on demand creation for membrane filters.

I worked also in collaboration with Center for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technologies (CAWST) International Technical Advisor to Africa to offer trainings and Technical Support to organizations.


Industrial attachment

I worked with government health centres as an intern.  My main interest was on disease epidemiology especially water related diseases as they pose a major burden to many parts within Kenya. I participated in community sensitization programmes on WASH and the impact it had on reducing disease occurrence.
