Allow us to introduce you to our first WaterStarters franchisee, Philip Salaton! Hailing from Kajiado County, Philip currently serves as a village administrator for the County Government of Kajiado. His responsibilities in this role involve mobilizing and educating residents to actively participate in development projects.

Besides his government work, Philip is an entrepreneur with a rich background. He has previously worked with various NGOs such as The Kenya Red Cross, Red Crescent Society, and UNICEF, focusing on WASH, climate adaptation, food security programs, and emergency response initiatives. This experience has equipped Philip with extensive knowledge in rural water management and fostering positive behavior change within Kenyan communities. Consequently, there was no need to explain to him why training local caregivers in WASH within WaterStarters is of utmost importance!

Philip's passion for community service shines brightly, and he is incredibly enthusiastic about being a part of WaterStarters. As our inaugural franchisee, he sets a remarkable example for future franchisees, showcasing the dedication and drive needed for success. So, we are thrilled to have Philip on board, and he will undoubtedly serve as an inspiration to others in the future!
