*'''February 2013: Kisumu County receives water pasteurization information''' - Former SCI [[Kenya]] staffer [[John Amayo]] runs [[Sustainable Utilization of Renewable Energy]] (SURE) in the Kadibo division of Kisumu County. With the help of [[Solar Cookers International]] and [[Bob Metcalf]]'s portable microbiology lab, SURE has been able to: test local water sources and has distributed thirty safe water packages to the vulnerable in the community. The safe water packages which SURE distributes, like the ones received by FOTO beneficiaries, are accompanied by programs to educate the community on hand washing, food safety, cleanliness around the home, and solar pasteurizing or chemically treating all drinking water. SURE also has plans to harness wind power for lighting and promote the use bio-fuels like biogas for lighting and cooking.
 
 
*'''August 2008:''' With support from the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, the long anticipated “training of trainers” water testing and solar pasteurization workshop was held in June at Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu, [[Kenya]]. Participants included 20 top staff members each from the Water Resources Management Authority (WRMA) and the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation (MPHS). Solar Cookers International (SCI) staff members [[Margaret Owino]], [[Faustine Odaba]], [[Elijah Achola]], [[Dinah Chienjo]], [[Simon Ogutu]], John Amayo and [[Karyn Ellis]] were instrumental in the success of this workshop, as was [[John Rimberia]] from Embu. Microbiologist and SCI Board President Dr. [[Bob Metcalf]] led the workshop. Topics included a review of bacterial properties and growth, pasteurization principles, use of the bacterium Escherichia coli as a contamination indicator, properties of the Colilert® and Petrifilm™ tests for E. coli, and solar pasteurization using the CooKit solar cooker and SCI’s wax-based, reusable [[Water Pasteurization Indicator]] (WAPI).
