On Thursday 7 September, Rob Mustard (Director of Digital at Scottish Water), Ken Hutchison (Chairman of WaterAid Scotland and Head of Scottish Water International) and six other brave souls will be diving with the sharks at Deep Sea World, South Queensferry. Pathfinder are sponsoring the event, which will include a networking lunch, entertainment and competitions, and also access to the aquarium with additional shows for the Scottish Water audience.
The Shark Dive is one part of the fund element of the WaterAid Water Innovators challenge. Teams from around the world are competing to solve a real life problem in Nicaragua. The team must design and develop a fully functioning app and raise £10,000 to be in with a chance to deliver their solution on the ground.
Scottish Water’s pilot team, ‘Team Albagua’ said, “ In 2015 to 2016, WaterAid reached 1.9 million people with clean water, 3 million with decent toilets and 4.7 million with good hygiene”.
Pathfinder are delighted to be sponsoring Team Albagua and we would like to wish them the best of luck with the event and their fund raising.
