Project Maji & Brineys Partner for Water

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

What better way to mark World Water Day than promising even more clean water! We are pleased to announce our brand new safe water partnership with Brineys. Together, we will bring sustainable access to safe water to a rural community of one thousand people in Kenya. Read on to learn more about this impact-driven collaboration.

We are so grateful to have an incredible partner-community at Project Maji. Partners so committed to seeing an end to the water crisis that they’ve dedicated their funds, time, talent, and creativity helping us find unique and powerful ways to tackle the water crisis. To date, they’ve helped us deliver over 200 million litres of safe water to serve over 100,000 people around the globe with clean and safe drinking water. It’s a testament to the power of connecting business and purpose.

Project Maji’s safe water partnership with Brineys is a case in point. Based out of the Netherlands, Brineys is a like-minded organization working to accelerate safe water access in Kenya…..but with a twist! Their model relies on extracting salt from seawater and selling it for profit to fund sustainable safe water projects like ours.

Sharing Learnings

Our joint vision is to see a world where the water crisis is a thing of the past and no one has to worry about drinking water. Brineys wants to learn from the approaches and methods of Project Maji to learn how to make long term impact with drinking water. Our Kenyan staff wholeheartedly welcomes the Brineys team to follow us on this journey from site selection, community sensitization meetings to WASH trainings and formal commissioning of the site.

Ripple Effect

The first Brineys water access point will soon be a reality, increasing safe water availability for a selected rural marginalized community with population of approximately 1,000 people, eliminating the need for villagers to drink from contaminated sources. Through our partnership, we will safeguard vulnerable communities from COVID-19 and countless other water-borne illnesses still active across rural Kenya. In addition, this safe water investment will have a positive ripple effect on economic productivity, income levels, school attendance and women’s empowerment in the communities.
