In December 2018, Dr. Martin Fisher, KickStart’s CEO and Co-Founder, shared what KickStart is doing to lift millions of people out of poverty at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100. Held in Africa for the first time in Johannesburg, South Africa, the festival celebrated the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birthday by mobilizing global leaders, artists, influencers, and thousands of global citizens to raise awareness of extreme poverty.
Over 1.2 million people have already used KickStart’s pumps to transform their own lives.
But that is a mere drop in the bucket.
More than 100 million more families can easily irrigate their land and climb out of poverty.
