    Dear participants, I created this forum as a space for all of us to present ourselves so we get to know each other a little bit.

I´m based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from where I coordinate Cap-Net´s virtual campus. So I´m deeply involved in water capacity development. I have a Masters in Education and a Postgraduate degree in management of non-for-profit organisations and together with my love for the environment and human development I like very much my work towards global goals as the Sustainable Development Goals, and working with open networks and partnerships from all over the world. I´m married to Andrea and happy father of Jazmin (10 and Benicio (7). Welcome everybody and all the best for this course!

    Hi all,

    Pleasure to meet you!

    My name is Jeroen Trimpe Burger and I work for the Kenya Pooled Water Fund: a non-profit Kenyan Company established to provide water service providers (WSPs) access to capital market financing for their infrastructure needs. This is done by pooling WSPs’ loans to back a bond issuance as part of annual program. KPWF’s bond program will help bridge the funding gap of the water and sanitation sector which is currently estimated at KES 1,172 Billion (€ 10 Billion/ $12.6 Billion).

    I also work on a partnership between the Dutch World Waternet and Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company in the framework of the WaterWorX program: a program in which Dutch water supply companies will set up Water Operational Partnerships (WOPs) with water utilities in Africa, Asia and Latin-America to support them in reducing non-revenue water and improve the financial and administrative systems.

    Looking forward to learning together.

    Goodmorning from Nakuru, Kenya!

    My name is Caroline (37) – I have lived in Kenya for about 15 years, mostly working in marginalized and remote areas. Bringing sustainable development is a real challenge. Through this course I do hope to learn a lot about how I can achieve this in the projects that I am involved in, mainly in Education and Agriculture.
    Bringing Hope, Help and Development is something I am very passionate about!

    Water management will be especially important as we are about to start of growing greens with shade nets in a semi-arid environment. We are not very far from the Lake Turkana windpower project that some of you may have heard of.

    I studied agricultural teacher training and have a BA in Education. Meanwhile I am being coached by a professional Program Manager in the Gheothermal sector in Netherlands, where I was born. A non-profit organization was started soon after I started working in Kenya – this year we celebrate 15 years!

    On a personal note, for the last 2,5 years I have been in a relationship with Frank who is an engineer in ICT. He has been of much support!

    Looking forward to interact and share in the days ahead,

    Carolien Zijda

    Hi to all of you. My name is Santiago Nunez (31), I am from Colombia and I Finished a Master program in Natural Resources Management and Development in Germany, where I am living right now.
    I am very worried about the corruption in water issues, specially in Latin America, where I come from. I know deeply the Colombian case, ant it is a very concerning topic, because I feel that people don’t know about the tools they can use to avoid corruption, this is one of my concerns.
    I would like to learn a lot in this course, right now I am not working and I am looking for a Job, so I think that new knowledge could open the door to new opportunities.
