AN NGO IN DUBAI THAT STRIVES TO INNOVATE.
CONSTANT INNOVATION FOR WATER:
Today, 1.42 billion people – including 450 million children
– live in areas of high water vulnerability.
Each day this crisis goes unsolved, hundreds of families lose a loved one to it, while millions continue to suffer. At Project Maji, we are fighting the water crisis through constant innovation in the rural water space. We have entered an action-research partnership with Practica Foundation of the Netherlands to improve rural water business models. In this project, we are testing a sustainable safe drinking water distribution network, using multiple distribution points to enhance safe water access and encourage willingness to pay for water. A pilot has been rolled out in the Asomdwee Community, Central Region, in Ghana to assess whether this will prove to be a self-sustaining and self-expanding model for rural water provision.

WHO WE ARE
Another Drinking Water Charity?
We are a non-profit social enterprise, a clean water charity that strives to bring sustainable access to safe water across rural sub-Saharan Africa through solar-powered water kiosks. Currently operating 84 kiosks, we are on a mission to provide access to safe water to 1 million people by 2025. To reach this goal, we replace broken handpumps in Ghana and Kenya, using existing infrastructure to offer cost-efficient alternatives. We empower the communities we work in, setting them on a journey of self-reliance by providing the latest, self-sustainable water solutions, such as mobile monitoring and e-payment systems.
Where We Work
Since 2015, we have provided sustainable access to safe water to thousands of people in Ghana and Kenya, pumping millions of litres of water each year. We partner with local governments, corporates, private donors and NGOs such as World Vision and IFRC (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent) all of whom share our vision for sustainable change.
Ghana, our home country, is where we launched our operations in 2015.
Kenya is also one of our focus countries and we aim to scale up exponentially in the coming years
