Clarice Odhiambo

Clarice Odhiambo ’88 is the founder of the Africa Center for Engineering Social Solutions. She was a 2008 URI Distinguished Achievement Award honoree and the subject of a July 2008 Quad Angles cover story.

A chemical engineer who previously worked for Unilever and Coca-Cola designing products for the African market, Odhiambo has traveled all over Africa. “I have learned there is more to life than making money,” says Odhiambo. Her organization’s mission is to bring college students to African villages to improve the lives of residents through the creation and implementation of simple, viable technical solutions, such as simple irrigation and sanitation systems. Moreover, she aims to reduce the poverty level in the continent by creating and sustaining successful enterprises that employ local residents.

    Thank you so much for visiting our class this year at Woodstock Academy. We all greatly appreciate your work and the time you took to answer our questions. I’m pleased to tell you that several of us are launching an NGO to help poor families in our area. Your insight has helped us turn our ideas into something real!

    Thanks again,
