Stella was invited to speak before 35 participants at a 2 week permaculture course taking place at the Edmund Rice Sinon High School grounds and organized by the Food Water Shelter organization (www.foodwatershelter.org.au). The 2 week course was also hosted by the Kenyan Permaculture Research Institute which sponsored the thirty five participants to gain hands-on experience designing and working on the farms of the NGO Kesho Leo in the Arusha area.
During the morning hours, Stella made a presentation about the ceramic water filter and its beneficial use in rural areas. The participants were very interested and purchased some filters. The drinking water used at the event and for the duration of the two week course was provided by the use of 3 SWCEA ceramic water filters lent by SWCEA to Kesho Leo.
