Strides for Africa

Changing Lives by Putting Water Wells in Africa

Meet Strides for Africa’s Talented Volunteer Addition – Keerthana Sreenivasan

Keerthana has a great skill set and passion to help others. Now supporting the people of sub-Saharan Africa via Strides for Africa, we are so fortunate to have her contributions and perspective on our team. Keethana plans to pursue a Masters Degree at UW-Madison starting this fall.

Introducing our talented volunteer, Keerthana Sreenivasan in her words. “My name is Keerthana Sreenivasan and I am a recent graduate of UW-Madison studying Civil and Environmental Engineering. I grew in Uganda, Tanzania and India before coming to the U.S. for my undergrad. Through my travels, I have been exposed to different cultures and environments which really widened my perspective of the world and the problems we face. Always wanting to lend a helping hand, I worked with Engineers without Borders during my undergrad on a water well distribution system in Uganda.

Having graduated, I wanted to continue doing similar work and that’s when my paths crossed with Chris and my involvement with Strides for Africa began. Since I became a volunteer, I have met the amazing proficient team that makes up SFA, worked to enhance the website, develop a water-well guidance manual and further new potential projects. If every drop counts, then lets make it count.”
