Mama Josée: C’est quoi Asili?

Posted on Aug 07, 2020

Au cours du développement d’une stratégie renouvelée de la marque d’ECI, on m’a demandé, C’est quoi Asili? En tant que superviseur des activités des fontainières et appuis aux respects de la marque Asili dans la communauté; originaire de Kabare moi-même; j’ai quelques réflexions sur cette question.

Mama Josée: What is Asili?

Posted on Aug 07, 2020

During the development of a new branding strategy for ECI, I was asked, What is Asili? As supervisor of water operations and steward of the Asili brand in the community, and someone originally from Kabare myself, I have some thoughts on this question.
