Did you know that dirty water kills about 5000 children per day? This according to The Guardian, a Pulitzer prize winning British newspaper. That's almost 2 million children per year! And this is not counting people who fall sick from ingesting dirty water and the lack of productivity for parents and children who invest [waste?] a fair part of their day in search of clean water. Heartbreaking! This is why Safe Water Kenya was born and Don Arnold, a veteran of the plumbing industry, took it upon himself to leverage his expertize and correct this situation.
Although Don started with Kenya, Safe Water has plans to expand to Ghana, Uganda and greater part of Africa. Once Oracle and mFrontiers joined hands with Don, we encouraged him to expand to Asia, where, inspite of all the progress and countries being super powers and what not, a vast majority of the people still dont have access to clean water.
Come and listen to this heart warming story of how Safe Water leveraged a Mobile app built on enterprise software technology, like WebLogic and the Oracle Database, to provide clean water to Kenyans and to provide accountability to its donors with complete and immediate transparency.
