We create water independence and sustainable agriculture solutions to generate economic opportunities in East Africa.
To date we have partnered with 37 diverse communities in East Africa, transforming nearly 90,000 lives with access to the essential resources of clean water and reliable food sources.
We build water and agriculture projects WITH communities. We work alongside communities and partners; we listen, empower and set goals to develop practical solutions that are needed most. With our shared investment transformation model , our partners receive an initial project investment and then are able to fund new projects, on their own, with the revenue communities generate from our initial project investment. We work with our partners to create strong learning and evaluation systems to ensure long-term viability, health and economic outcomes
Our impact is tangible, concrete and instant. You can see the clean water flowing from our boreholes and the healthy food growing in our small-scale farming projects. Children attend school and adults, especially women, have more time to seek employment. The impact of our programs lasts for generations. The water continues to flow, the food continues to grow and lives are forever changed, long after our initial investment.
