Africaqua has gotten the nod to join the United Nations Development Programme Business Call to Action (BCtA) initiative, a confirmation made by Sahba Sobhani initiative’s officer.
The approval is as a result of the company’s commitment and participation in the inclusive and sustainable business initiatives at the Base of the Pyramid (BoP).
This comes days after the company launched its pilot water project in Kimana, Kajiado County, a project that is already benefiting residents with safe drinking water to community members and employment to the youth.
Africaqua now joins other companies in the world which are BCtA members, to enhance livelihoods of low income people through engaging them in the production, distribution and consumption of products. This is a long term goal of changing lives of millions of people.
The company through its One Safe Drop Initiative has already employed at least 20 youth in its different sections and aims at raising the number to 200 by the end of year 2017. This will be possible, especially with the 100 water shops expected to be established in rural and urban Kenya by the end of year 2017.
