Project Maji Household Connections are a forward-thinking water supply solution that leverages a solar-powered borehole and storage tank to establish a pressurized network catering to both prepaid public kiosks and individual household connections. In a typical setup covering 1 to 2 square kilometres, 1 to 2 public kiosks and 15 to 40 household connections are strategically integrated to ensure widespread access to clean water.
In addition to serving community dispensing points, the system extends its reach by piping water directly to individual households willing to invest in the service. This approach offers unparalleled convenience to participating households, eliminating the need for residents to travel to public kiosks to fetch water. The deployment of prepaid water meters adds a layer of flexibility for households, allowing them to purchase credits of desired values based on their weekly or monthly water consumption needs.
