The Safe Water Network approach has evolved from early years of pioneering field experience. We manage initiatives in India, Ghana and Kenya, testing and refining approaches that are flexible, affordable and easily maintained so that a community can sustain them over time.
We push responsibility and authority down to the local operating unit starting with the formation of a safe water committee. We build local capacity and capability with training, oversight and incentives. Key operational metrics are remotely monitored for data accuracy, cost-control and fast problem-solving.
We target off-grid rural and remote communities focusing on villages under 5,000 people. We also price water up to 50% lower than alternatives to ensure fair and equitable access. Independent research has validated that the poorest populations are most likely to purchase our water and derive the greatest health benefits.
Our four integrated areas of activity include:
|Design, launch and management of water purification stations and rainwater harvesting programs to provide safe water to those in need. We also gain important field experience to optimize solutions.|
|A fact-based approach to measure outcomes and models, as well as develop scale propositions.|
|Collaborative activities, best practice approaches and action-oriented programs that apply partner expertise to our field work and scale development projects.|
|On-site consultation to other organizations, as well as support through training materials and manuals.|
