WaterStep to Open New Global Office in Bungoma, Kenya
Claudia Daniels, Zacharie Tossou and Humphrey Muchuma teamed up to make the exciting announcement that WaterStep will be expanding our global footprint by opening a field office in Bungoma, Kenya. The office will be managed by WaterStep Ambassadors Humphrey Muchuma and Raphael Wanjala and they will be the faces of WaterStep in East Africa. Both men have been working with WaterStep for the last ten years and have had a tremendous impact building healthier communities in Kenya and surrounding East African countries.
WaterStep has been fortunate to host Humphrey at our Louisville headquarters this week. During his first trip to the US he shared with WaterStep staff and supporters how privileged and honored he is to have the opportunity to manage this new office in his own community. He announced from stage, “I’m excited that when the history of WaterStep is read many years from now, I will be a part of that history and this new global office located in Kenya will be part of that history.”
Zacharie Tossou, WaterStep’s International Development Director, said, “This new East African office is a game changer for WaterStep. It will provide a central location to link all the work being done in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia and allow that work to expand even further.”
The Bungoma office will offer opportunities for extended training on equipment, space for groups to meet and strategize, and access to Humphrey, Raphael and other WaterStep field consultants during pre-set business hours.
Humphrey told us when he first began working with us ten years ago that he was going to make WaterStep a household name in Kenya. Congratulations Humphrey – mission accomplished!
Thank you WaterStep Nation for celebrating with us and for making this expansion possible through your love and support.
