Clean Water For Kenya

My business school buddy Jeremy Farkas is heading off to Kenya soon.  He says:

I’ll be developing marketing and distribution programs to broaden access to clean water for families living on as little as a few dollars a day.  Every year over 1.6 million people, largely children under the age of 5, die of diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitation.

I really admire Jeremy for his can-do attitude, working on very important problems that are not at all close to home.  I invite all of you to follow along on his blog Clean Water For All and if you feel so moved to help them out.

    What a great project! I like the marketing component because it addresses problems relating to information flow and also addresses an important challenge in the developing world – getting folks to change some of the habits that probably were functional long ago but have since become roadblocks to positive change. Although it may not apply here, vaccinations are an example of a case where we need better marketing to help folks understand how important vaccines are for their children. This is even true in the … developed world!
