We bring sustainable clean water to people in need by effectively engaging local communities around the world.
We partner with local organizations on the ground who have a proven track record to implement solutions effectively.
Together with our partners, we work with locals on the ground to build each water system. By doing so, we reach the level of community engagement, education, and local buy-in needed for solutions to last.
Our projects not only sustain themselves, but compound over time. The result is we achieve community development and growth year over year.
Impact Water has a goal of providing universal access to clean drinking water at schools across Africa. They deliver chlorine water purification systems at an affordable cost to schools in Kenya and Nigeria. These are designed specifically for schools without electricity or piped water to provide large quantities of water for their students. Bringing clean water into schools promotes school attendance. Plus, students are encouraged to bring the water home at night to their families.
Utilizing a micro-franchising model, Shishir establishes water filtration and production centers. Each is managed and operated by a local entrepreneur. River surface water - excessively found throughout Bangladesh - is filtered using UV Led technology. Each entrepreneur then sells the clean water to community members for $0.006 / liter. Thus, jobs are created and economic returns generated, ensuring the maintenance and operation of the system for years to come.
