Our Mission

We believe that success in Africa will come from a ‘Trade not Aid’ ethos. Our mission is to build a multi-product, multi-project infrastructure company, developing innovative products and solutions to deliver Social Impact projects. We are focused on starting this journey with a single project in Ghana but understand delivering on the mission will initiate considerable direct and indirect change by alleviating millions of people from daily water poverty.

Working in Ghana

Using proven UK designed technology and systems, our first project in Ghana will provide community-based potable water infrastructure to up to 450 locations across the country. This project will alleviate up to 225,000 Ghanaians from the plight of daily water poverty by providing 5 litres of 99.999% clean sterile drinking water per person per day for less than 1 pesewa per litre. 

The provision of clean sterile drinking water will allow the Government of Ghana to further contribute to 7 of 8 of the sub-goals under the UN Sustainable Development Goal for water and sanitation (SDG6), as well as  contributing to the Government's progress against SDGs, 1, 3, 5, 8 and 9. 

This project has been responsibly developed by Aqua Africa over a period of 4 years, including working closely with UK Export Finance (UKEF) and a UK commercial bank on finance solutions.
