4. Collaboration with University of Illinois
To create solutions for water quality issues in developing regions, an integrated approach between engineering, chemistry, and sociology is necessary. In order to ensure sustainability of the solution, it is essential that an in-country presence is maintained throughout the implementation process. It is against this background that the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign initiated collaboration with the University of Nairobi and Bondo University College to begin addressing the issues surrounding water quality in Bondo, Siaya County.
