My name is Pamela Crane. I was born in Kenya and grew up in Egypt, Fiji and Jordan. I have done water research and community development work across Africa. This is my personal blog where I talk about my life and travels. It is a piece of where I am.
Pamela E. Crane, PhD, is the Director of International Programs at Lifewater International. Lifewater International is a US-based nonprofit focused on partnering with national organizations to implement water, sanitation and hygiene projects that empower communities and transform regions. Previously, Crane worked at Blood:Water Mission, a US-based nonprofit with the mission of empowering communities to fight against HIV/AIDS and clean water crises in Africa. From 2008-2013 her work as the Africa Field Manager brought her alongside leaders of non-profits in Sub-saharan Africa implementing water and HIV/AIDS projects that were transforming communities. These projects empowered communities by addressing core issues such as hope and reconciliation while meeting expressed needs by finding the most appropriate technical solution for each situation. During this time, she also led the field efforts to pilot a field office in Kigali, Rwanda.
Pamela serves on the Engineering Advisory Council at the Fetzer Institute, which is looking at how love and forgiveness are expressed through different disciplines. She is an award winning blogger and her photography is used in social media campaigns. She is regularly invited to conferences and universities to lecture. She holds a BS in Environmental Biology from Taylor University, a MS in Environmental Geology and a PhD in Water Resources, both from the University of Notre Dame. She is published in groundwater and hydrology academic journals.
