VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quest Water Global, Inc. (OTCBB:QWTR) ("Quest" and/or "Quest Water" and or "Company"), an innovative water technology company, and developer of the AQUAtap™ Community Drinking Water Station and WEPSTM Atmospheric Water Extraction and Purification System, announced today that the Company is responding to a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) from the Kunta Kinteh Family Foundation to provide a clean water solution for The Village of Jufureh, Republic of The Gambia.
The Kunta Kinteh Family Foundation, with offices in Gambia and the United States, recently invited Quest Water to respond to its Request for Proposal. The objective of the RFP is two-fold: first, to provide a clean source of drinking water for the 2,800 residents of The Village of Jufureh, Gambia, and second, to provide a clean water source for the many International tourists who travel to The Village to visit the birthplace of Kunta Kinteh. In response to the RFP, the Company is pleased to submit a proposal which will include the use of its AQUAtap Community Drinking Water and Distribution Stations to provide a sustainable source of water to both the residents and visitors of the Village.
"We are grateful and honored to have been invited to submit a proposal to the Kunta Kinteh Family Foundation. Gambia is one of the many West African nations that has been in our sights for their lack of clean water, but this RFP allows us to accelerate our potential entry into the country,” said John Balanko, Quest Water CEO & President. “This also affords us the opportunity to commence dialogue with The Gambian Government and governments of neighboring countries, Mali, Senegal, Guinea, Ivory Coast, and Mauritania. We are excited with the prospect of proposing our AQUAtap technology to the Foundation as a sustainable solution for the clean water requirements of the villagers. The opportunity was introduced to us by Mr. Thomas Angell, who heads up our Joint Venture partnership, Global Air Water Resources.”
