Safe Water Ceramics of East Africa was pleased to attend the Karibu Trade and Tourism Fair from 8th June to 10thJune 2012. Diyenat Mabika and Stella Kimerei attended all 3 days of the event and were present to explain and demonstrate how the filter works both in English and Kiswahili.
We were at stand W11 and received much interest in our ceramic water filters. Many people purchased our filters for their home use and/or to give as a gift to local families that are boiling water right now as a means to get safe drinking water.
Special thanks to Rob Barbour, manager of Afrika Safaris ( www.afrikaafrikasafaris.com), who purchased two filters to be used at his campsite – they are environmentally friendly and ecological as they promote sustainable safaris.
Also special thanks to Chris Pilley, director of B2B Bush and Beach Safaris, who purchased four filters to donate as part of his charity program (www.africarootsfoundation.org).
The Karibu Fair is an important event in the town of Arusha, and happens once a year around the same month. Many exhibitors and participants attended.
