Delegationtrip to Ethiopia

At the end of September we were in Ethiopia to present our “what a Bird” for the water sector as part of a business trip (sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy).

We made it

With our business plan we were able to assert ourselves against almost 60 competitors and won 3rd place and the audience award in the final Gründergeist Münsterland.

Directly after our trip to Ghana we went on to Nairobi in Kenya. There we took part in another business trip organized by AHK Kenya and German Water Partnership. Also here the interest was very big and we were able to make some interesting contacts. After the delegation trip we went to Lake Victoria, because so many people still use the water directly from the lake, also to drink. So we could present our #whatabird to the inhabitants of Dunga Bay near Kisumu and show that the water is clear and free of bacteria, if it was pumped through the #whatabird before. With this in mind, many thanks to Patty.
