How The Jewish State Is Helping To Provide Clean Water Across Africa: A Fireside Chat With Michal Smith Of Israeli Nonprofit Innovation: Africa

Despite its tiny size and shortage of natural resources, or in fact, as a result of it, Israel has become a widely-recognized leader in the usage of solar power and water use. Rooftops across Israel feature solar-powered water heaters, and Israel boasts that 90 percent of its water is recycled, four times higher than any other country in the world.

According to the famous proverb, necessity is the mother of invention, and so Israel – with little rainfall – must make maximal use of its limited natural resources.

And while Israel has done exactly that, the Jewish State has taken it a step further, taking its know-how and technical skills, and actively helping to share that knowledge with other countries around the world.

Enter Innovation: Africa.

For the last 15 years, the Israeli nonprofit has helped deliver access to light and clean water to millions of people across Africa, also showing the true face of Israel in the process.

In this week’s podcast, we sit down with Michal Smith. Michal is the Director of Communications at Innovation: Africa.
