Matthew

Matthew was one of 17 South Sudanese trained to teach others how to construct biosand filters  (February 2007).  Based on his passion and capacity, he was selected (along with two others) to initiate the project in Kajo Keji, where Matthew eventually became the project manager.

Another NGO recognized Matthew’s growing capacity and retained him to help drill wells.  However, Matthew missed the empowerment aspects of the Safe Water Project as well as the capacity to ensure that water being supplied is actually safe to drink. 

atthew now serves as an entrepreneur developer for the Safe Water Projects. As such he mentors the safe water project teams as they develop their self-sustaining, socially beneficial projects.
