HANDWASHING SAVES LIVES
645 million people live in rural Sub-Saharan Africa, and more than three-quarters do not have the facilities at home to wash their hands with soap and water.
COVID-19 has now reached every African country. According to WHO, the outbreak is accelerating and it is a race against time to halt its grip across the region. Simple hand hygiene is our frontline defense against the virus. Yet, more than 300 million people do not have access to safe water, let alone soap, in Sub-Saharan Africa. We are working to change that. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we have launched an aggressive handwashing and soap distribution campaign across Maji communities. Till date, we have reached more than 10,000 people with handwashing facilities, trainings, and bars of soap. We cannot stop now. This is the time to intervene, provide clean water, teach proper handwashing and distribute soap to protect every household. Join us and support handwashing to save lives.

WHO WE ARE
Another Water NGO?
We are a non-profit social enterprise, bringing sustainable access to safe water across rural sub-Saharan Africa through solar-powered water kiosks. Currently operating 60 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
