Debbie Buderwitz, The Samburu Project Board Treasurer

Debbie comes from an agricultural family…

where the need for water has been a constant concern in her life. She grew up in Orange County, California with Executive Director, Linda Hooper and first became involved with TSP due to their close friendship. Debbie began her involvement with TSP by attending Splash Bash and Walk for Water events and was so moved by the stories of the daily struggles of the people of Samburu to find fresh water. It seemed so wrong that we take for granted the presence of water in our daily lives when others pray daily for this basic necessity. 

Debbie is a graduate of UCLA, Theatre, Film & Television and has an MBA in Finance from USC. Debbie the mother of two young adults and professionally, is the Chief Operating Officer and Accountant for a boutique management company in the entertainment industry. It seemed like a natural fit to take on the role of TSP Treasurer, which she assumed in early 2016.

I am passionate about The Samburu Project because I believe that clean water should be a right not a privilege.
