Over two billion people—more than a quarter of the global population—do not have access to safe water. As part of Chicago Water Week, nonprofit Surge for Water and investment firm SBB Research Group will discuss their long-term partnership to provide safe water to thousands of people in Kaberamaido, Uganda.
Shilpa Alva, executive director of Surge for Water, founded her organization in 2008 to address the global water crisis. She will be joined at Chicago Water Week by SBB Research Group’s Jordan Robinson, who has spearheaded the firm’s collaboration with Surge for Water since 2015. Their projects together have repaired wells, distributed hundreds of water filters, and provided vital educational resources, which has resulted in 1,953 people now having access to safe water in their community.
"Surge for Water has a tremendous impact on so many lives," said Robinson. "We are proud to partner with them and look forward to discussing our work together at Chicago Water Week."
The online event will take place on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 from 2:00-3:00 PM. To attend, register for free at the following link:
