Clean Water

  • Access to clean drinking water is a basic need and human right
  • Contaminated water transmits diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid or polio
  • About 2 billion people worldwide meeting their drinking water from such sources it is estimated that 485.000 deaths are due to diarrhoea
  • About 10% of the global burden of disease could be prevented with access of clean water
  • Today about 785 million people worldwide continue lack to access of clean drinking water
  • Most of them are primarily located at the sub-Saharan region, e.g. rural areas in Tanzania

Clean Energy

  • Electrification rates throughout rural areas of Tanzania and sub-Sahara Africa are quite low
  • Mini-grids have emerged as a solution for fast, cost effective and efficient electrification in rural areas
  • It is estimated that about 86% of the people living in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa have no access to electricity
  • The International Energy Agency (IEA) expects that by 2040 about 140 million people in sub-Saharan Africa will get access to electricity by mini-grids
  • Besides improvement of peopleĀ“s living conditions the availability of electricity is the most important requirement for local development and especially to access to clean drinking water
