WEP program with Swiss Re has successfully started! The team of seven Swiss Re employees will support Community Hero Alphoncina in running a water program in Tanzania.
The participants come from three continents (America, Africa and Europe) and met for the first time in the heart of Switzerland to team-up with Alphoncina who is running the social entreprise MSABI in Tanzania. During the next 7 months the team will help the Resource Award winner of 2016 MSABI to get to the next level of business.
At the end of October, the participants will travel to Ifakara, Tanzania and get the chance to talk to Alfonsina’s team MSABI and their customers to find out their needs and challenges. They work on a real case and will act as entrepreneurs and might be the ones who will turn around the social business in the water sector and make a real impact in the communities of Ifakara. We are excited to hear from them once they are back from Tanzania!
