our purpose

why kusini water exists today

water is
Life

Globally over 1 Billion people lack access to a source of safe drinking water and sanitation and filtration systems are either too costly or difficult to maintain. We aim to change that.
 
Kusini Water is a social enterprise that builds water treatment systems from nanotechnology and macadamia nut shells. Our systems bring clean, safe drinking water to people in rural, peri-urban and informal settlements throughout the African continent.

Our solution
Involves you — 
more than anything

For every litre you buy, we are able to provide 20 litres to areas without access to safe water

The Social Impact 
Is Massive

Access to safe drinking water changes everything.
When we install water treatment systems in communities that lack access to clean water, we improve:

General Health
& Wellness

Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Our systems make that a problem of the past.

Better Hygiene
for Everyone

Clean water and proper toilets at school means teenage girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month and miss valuable class time. General hygeine amongst the community gets better.

Oppurtunities
for Education

Clean water helps keep kids in school — less time collecting water for their families means more time in class.
