Zambia Diary | Day 9 | The young people of today eh?

While we’ve been staying here at ‘The Pearson’s House’ a couple of young people has passed through – friends of the children of Alison and Mark (Pearson). Anyway, they’ve told us what they are up to and we’ve told them what we are doing. Well, Andy (one of these young people), who lives in Kitwe, reacted to ColaLife like most young people do. He was very interested. Last night as Jane and I were being all creative, making the materials for the workshop tomorrow, Andy offered to help in any way he could and brought out his sketch book.

Well, you should never look a gift house in the mouth. We explained how the AidPod might be made of PET and be used to sterilise water and asked him if he could come up with a graphic to explain this and this is the result above. Bloody amazing!

Thanks Andy! And if you want Andy to do illustrations for you his email address is andrew.s.jackson [at] gmail [dot] com . . . but he can’t do everything for nothing!

Today I was invited to give a short presentation to the National Drugs Logistics Steering Committee which was an honour and meant that three or four additional partners now know about ColaLife which is good.

Tomorrow we have the workshop and, first thing, I have to call SABMiller to speak with their logistics person.

  4. I recently met an Environmental Health Officer from Uganda (at a meeting of the UK charity “Water for Kids”) who has a project called “SODIS” – Solar Water Disinfection. He has introduced it into one region of Uganda by getting school kids involved. It sounds a good match with your “Aidpod”. Please contact me for more details…
