Africaqua CEO David Kuria will be attending the Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI) In-Residence Accelerator program at Santa Clara University in California from August 9 to 18, 2017.
Kuria will join representatives from 15 other social enterprises across the world for the 10 days activity meant to strengthen the operations of social enterprises to enhance goal achievement and impact creation.
Africaqua is a social enterprise based on a safe water value chain model involving watershops, green distribution mechanisms and Micro-Distribution Centers (MDCs). The company is targeting to establish a chain of MDCs both in rural and urban areas in order to curb the ever rising water shortage nightmare in Kenya.
The program will enable Africaqua through the CEO to network in order to help in fulfilling the dream of providing rural and urban poor with access to safe drinking water at an affordable price.
Africaqua was listed among the 16 finalists of this year’s program that had attracted over 275 applicants.
