Yann in Rwanda (7) - Introducing the World Water Corps team

Monica Brown is the Assistant Director for Foundation Relations at Water for People (WFP) and leads the World Water Corps team for this assignment.  Born in the Seychelles (Indian Ocean) and raised up in Uganda, she worked for the World Bank for 12 years before joining WFP.  She is excited about the mission the team will perform in Rwanda.

Julie Labont√©, originally from Quebec and now living in San Francisco, is the director of the 12-year, $4.6-billion water system improvement program for San Francisco Public Utilities.  This is her first assignment with the World Water Corps (WWC), and very excited about being in Rwanda and help the team come up with water solutions for some of the water issues in this country.  She has been to Africa before, but this is the first time with an organization like Water for People.

Guy Beauchemin comes from Montreal, Quebec (Canada) and his background is in water treatment.  He is a specialist in “municipal water, sewage water, industrial water, bottled water, and even … military water as Engineer in the Canadian Army”.  It is now his first experience in “humanitarian water”.  He thanks his wife and four kids to allow him to go to the warm and special continent of Africa.

And then there is me ... (and you know what I do and what I look like!)
