MSABI received a welcome addition to the team in October with the arrival of a new volunteer - Jacquie Thomas, PhD.
With extensive water research and field experience, Jacquie's skills and knowledge are valuable to the organisation at this busy time.
Currently she is training two new lab technicians - Fatuma and Liberatus, recent science graduates, are also welcome additions to the team in Ifakara. The lab staff are working on perfecting methodologies and techniques required to manage water testing activities for MSABI's monitoring and evaluation program.
