Stephen has known Nick since 1989 when they were members of APEX, a not for profit organisation, involved in supporting community based projects. Stephen’s interest in assisting developing countries was sparked after reading Paul Polak’s book “Out of Poverty – What Works when Traditional Approaches Fail”. When Nick suggested his plan for assisting poor communities to improve water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities through a community based business model it provided an exciting opportunity for Stephen to contribute his practical engineering and project management expertise to a life changing venture.
