Special Thanks to Grand Circle Foundation

We want to recognize a long time friend of the project at Safe Water Ceramics of East Africa (SWCEA) -  Sandra Vaughan, East Africa Operations Coordinator for Grand Circle Corporation (http://grandcirclefoundation.org/).  Sandra (seen in the photo next to Kimeirei Mesiaki) comes to the SWCEA factory to purchase filters on behalf of the clients of Overseas Adventure Travels (OAT), a leading safari company with a program of Learning & Discovery. Most OAT clients who go on safaris in Tanzania later donate money towards a specific project to the Grand Circle Foundation which implements their wishes and allocates the funds to the requested project. Many safari groups have visited the SWCEA factory on their Learning & Discovery program to learn about the ceramic water filter, how it is made and how it works. Upon traveling back to their home country, they then donate money to Grand Circle Foundation towards purchasing SWCEA ceramic water filters.

So far, Grand Circle Foundation has purchased more than 200 filters that they donated to Maasai bomas and schools in very remote rural areas.

Sandra has taken it to heart to demonstrate to the rural schools how to use the filters and the benefits of doing so. Thanks to her, many schools have expressed the desire to receive more filters and thanks to OAT clients coming on safaris to Tanzania, they will.
