The Kusini Impact
Our Mission is to Bring 5 Million Litres to 5 Million People in 5 Years
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.
How we're impacting lives around South Africa
We partner with business and communities around South Africa to install and maintain Kusini water treatment sites. These sites create employment and provide clean, safe water to the schools and communities in the area. What makes our methods so impactful, is that they’re set up to last well into the future. This is made possible with you and your contributions!
how we measure social impact
Globally, the percentage of the population using safely managed drinking water services increased from 61 to 71 percent between 2000 and 2015; this remained unchanged in 2017. Additionally 19 per cent of the global population uses basic drinking water services. This means that 785 million people still lack basic drinking water services.
1 out of 3 schools in South Africa do not have access to safe drinking water and clean sanitation. This problem mainly affects kids aged 6 – 18 years who are most at risk of sickness from waterborne diseases and the danger of unsafe sanitation.
