Knowledge Sharing

The Sustainable Village Water Systems approach seeds economic empowerment and promotes health and wellness at the local level by creating a nexus between water (solar-powered water systems), food (agricultural extension) and better health (improved sanitation and hygiene at village schools and clinics). The integration of expertise in these key areas is a unique solution to the rural water crisis in East Africa. GWI is open to sharing all of its work: research, designs, position papers, initiatives and results.
