One of the greatest causes of poverty in Africa is also the most overlooked…the lack of access to clean drinking water. Bottled water is one commodity that is consumed in all parts of the world and of course those that are in the business of producing bottled water are known to generate sales year in year out if the business is well – managed. As a matter of fact, economic downturn hardly affects the consumption of bottled water simple because it is a commodity that is as important as the air we breathe in.
Of the 54 countries in Africa, 39 have a coastline, making desalination a logical solution. Insufficient infrastructure is a major reason why water is a challenge in Africa. Water projects only account for a cumulative average of 1.3% of total infrastructure investment in the continent. The high CAPEX and OPEX costs of desalination are a major restraint to the development of the desalination market in Africa.
Clean, safe drinking water is scarce. Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don’t have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles.
Water is the foundation of life. And still today, all around the world, far too many people spend their entire day searching for it.
Our plan is to begin constructing a small scalable water filtration factory in strategic location, which is basically filtration and bottling equipment in a shipping container storage and shop.
