We transform lives by providing access to safe water

WHO WE ARE

We are a non-profit social enterprise, a water NGO that

exists to empower and transform lives by providing

sustainable, effective and solar-powered water solutions to rural communities across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Five years ago, our CEO and Founder, Sunil Lalvani, witnessed the all too common scene of two children drinking water from a road-side puddle in rural Ghana. Feeling compelled to help, he used his experience in consumer electronics, to develop and deploy a solar-powered pump, to sustainably deliver safe water to a village in rural Ghana; coining the CSR project ‘Maji’ (Maji meaning water in Swahili).  Fast forward from there, Project Maji now operates as a stand-alone entity, a pan-African water NGO that has touched the lives of 60,000 people across Ghana and Kenya via sustainable delivery of safe water into their villages.
