Founded in Ghana in 2015, operations expanded into Kenya in 2017.

Project Maji designs, develops, and installs solar-powered water kiosks. We apply a business mindset, whereby our sites are self-sustaining. Our kiosks and small piped systems are fit-for-purpose to withstand harsh environments and they are modular, customizable, mobile-enabled, affordable, and durable.
