Challenge

Water scarcity is one of the world's leading problems with over 1 billion people lacking access to clean drinking water. The implications of the lack of safe water and access to adequate sanitation are numerous, with women and children being disproportionately impacted. From time wasted collecting water, to missing school, and suffering from water borne illnesses, limited access to safe water continues to stifle growth and cause death in communities across Kenya.

Solution

Project Maji designs, builds and monitors solar-powered water kiosks across sub-Saharan Africa. Using smart-solar technology, Project Maji is providing 50,000+ Africans with sustainable access to clean water. Through the funding of this project FAKC will be able to build three new installations and provide WASH training as well as new toilets for the children to use. These new water stations will provide water, sanitation as well as hygiene trainings for 5,000 people.

Long-Term Impact

As part of its vision to provide 1 million people in Africa with sustainable access to clean water, Project Maji is partnering with FAKC to build three water kiosks a water-stressed region of Kenya. To ensure the community has the funds available for essential repairs, Project Maji incorporates an automated, mobile money solution managed by the village itself. This way, the village is empowered to manage its own water supply, ensuring good health and prosperity for the entire community.
