MIT Water Lunch and Learn

The speaker for February's Lunch and Learn will be Kate Cincotta, Executive Director of Saha Global. A former aerospace engineer, Kate wanted to figure out a simple solution to the difficult problem of getting clean water to rural villages. She worked throughout Africa for ten years and found that again and again, the problem was not technology; it was distribution. She established Saha Global in northern Ghana to deliver clean water for all using materials readily available everywhere.

Saha gets the cleanest water to the poorest people. They work in rural Northern Region Ghana where they set up entrepreneurial women with chlorinating businesses that provide clean water that all can afford. To date, they have trained 293 women entrepreneurs who have launched 114 clean water businesses that serve approximately 53,450 people.
