DELIVERING SUSTAINABLE CLEAN WATER
WHAT WE DO.
Aqua Africa is an emerging leader in the development of climate-smart, social-impact projects which utilise solar power to provide safe, clean water to areas of the greatest need, reducing the plight of daily water poverty across Africa.
Our first project, a contract with the Government of Ghana, has a value of €30million and will be fully delivered in 2023. This project will alleviate a minimum of 225,000 people from daily water poverty and is 100% funded by UK Export Finance (UKEF) & HSBC as a LMA accredited Green Loan – which is the first ever green loan financing by UKEF & HSBC in Africa.
This project has been conscientiously developed over a period of 8 years and will be the largest commercial delivery of a rural water and revenue capture solution undertaken in Africa. It will form the blueprint for Aqua Africa to deliver further projects in Ghana and across Sub-Sahara Africa.
Over this time, Aqua Africa have gained significant UK and Ghana Government connectivity, including the full support in Ghana of His Excellency The President and The Vice President’s office, the Ministry of Sanitation & Water Resources (MSWR), The Ministry of Finance (MoF) and the Community Water & Sanitation Agency (CWSA), as well as the UK Department for International Trade (UKDIT), UKEF and the UK High Commission network.
Following this success, we are now being directed into new markets by UKEF and UKDIT, including the Ivory Coast, Kenya, South Africa and Botswana.
Water is a basic human need.
