Water Entrepreneurs

Implementing sustainable change with enterprise

We’re establishing small-scale businesses, creating prosperity and improved livelihoods for Malawians. 

Programme

Every year, budding entrepreneurs enroll onto our training programme, where they learn the technical skills necessary to install, repair and maintain a variety of water pumps found across their district. Upon completion of this training, which includes a visit to our own workshop in Lilongwe, they then receive the necessary tools and safety equipment.

Solution

From there, they embark on business training where they will gain skills in sales, marketing, book-keeping, networking and negotiation; equipping them with everything they need to run a viable business. They’ll receive on-going mentoring for two years which enables them to strengthen their skillset and increase their output, making their business – and water point functionality – sustainable.
