Our Team

 

We are Water for Rural Africa. Even though young, we’ve impacted thousands of lives in rural Africa through the provision of potable water, advocacy and policy directions. With our country coordinators across the African continent, supported by a dedicated team, ambassadors and our strategic Advisory Council, we are poised to launch into the deeps and affect many other lives with strong presence, passion, determination, and love for humanity.

We are challenged to change lives across Africa under the leadership of our Founder and President, Dr Donald Cog Senanu Agumenu.

There would be no Water for Rural Africa without our experienced, talented, passionate staffs. These professionals are the true agents of empowerment who make our work possible. We currently have more than 7 team members. We’re growing. We encourage you to visit our Careers page for current job opportunities – and to learn more about our culture – if you’d like to join our team.
