Key Training Takes Place in Ethiopia for Solar Panel Distribution Systems
Like many other countries in Africa, the water crisis in Ethiopia is a struggle for millions. Due to insurgent groups, political unrest and dangerous conditions, rural Ethiopia has remained largely unreached with clean water, forced to remain reliant on manual pumps rather than advanced solar technology. It’s for this reason that WorldServe decided to expand our mission into Ethiopia in 2018. We’re celebrating advances in our process as January 2020 marked the first solar-power training for our Ethiopia team!
As depicted in the images below, our Kenya team traveled to Ethiopia to provide specific training for the installation of our top-of-the-line solar panel distribution systems for clean water projects. This opens the door for incredible expansion within Ethiopia! We truly are giving Africa our best by sharing this type of advanced technology. In the coming weeks, our newly trained Ethiopian team will finalize five boreholes now waiting for the solar technology component of our unique process. All projects are placed near churches and community centers of rural villages in Ambo, Ethiopia. We are thrilled with the progress and expect great things to come!
Teens Raise Nearly $1 Million for Clean Water Projects in Kenya
In 2019, WorldServe International placed special emphasis on funding water projects in Kenya. Because of the incredible commitment and dedication of our partners, we were able to commit to an unprecedented 50 Kenyan locations in the years to come! With the help of Speed the Light, a youth ministry program, students around the United States raised nearly $1M to fund 19 solar-powered water projects in Kenya. On average, each water project will provide clean water to 5,000 people – a total of 95,000 people!
What an incredible testimony to the dedication of the next generation! We are so thankful for the commitment of these students and the leadership of Speed the Light for the incredible generosity and vision to help spread LIFE throughout Africa.
WorldServe International in The Press
In January, a group of 20 people climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for clean water. The stories that resulted have had a ripple effect in many US communities. Take a look at our press page to find videos and stories on the efforts of these incredible people!
