Gemma Bulos, Class of 2011
Empowering Women with Clean Water Solutions
To mark #GivingTuesday and our national day of holiday season giving, we shared our first story about the ripple effect of GWLN leaders. Our second story features Gemma Bulos, Director of Global Women's Water Initiative. Gemma, a 2011 graduate of GWLN's leadership program, has been working hard to realize her vision for clean water and effective sanitation for rural communities in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
Improved Public Health and New Income for Families
In 2011, Gemma's organization taught 56 grassroots women and international fellows to build rainwater harvesting tanks, filters andlatrines. As a result, 15,000 people in East Africa now have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene education. Grassroots women are launching micro-enterprises and offering personal hygiene classes, resulting in improved public health and new income for their families. They are raising their voices in a sector where women are typically excluded.
"GWLN's community of alumni in Africa helped me identify partners and participants to bring depth and regional knowledge to our programs." -- Gemma Bulos
