Simon Wanda (Kenya, MSc African Studies 2013-14, Louis Dreyfus – Weidenfeld) initiated a project in Makunga Village, Kenya, where a lack of clean drinking water remains one of the major developmental impediments and health hazards for local inhabitants.

Using his college breakfast money, Simon took it upon himself to finance – and find additional funding – for the digging of a well and the installation of a pump to provide access to clean drinking water. The pump is now in action and serving the whole village. This will be an ongoing project which Simon aims to roll out to other areas, reaching 2,000 households in the next five years. A truly impressive feat!
